Exhibition of Somerleyton Road plans

Written by Future Brixton

October 17, 2015

The planning application for Somerleyton Road was submitted in September 2015. On 13, 14 and 17 October we held an exhibition at the Black Cultural Archives Heritage Centre to show people the designs, the scale model and provide an opportunity for people to talk to the architects, development managers and the partners (Brixton Green, Ovalhouse and Lambeth Council).

In case you missed it, we’ve put the exhibition online below.


For background information about how we got to this stage with the project visit the Somerleyton Road pages on this site.
