Better Streets for Brixton Hill

4th October 2017 Off By Safer Streets

We are a group of local residents who want to see positive change in our local area. Our objective is quieter, calmer, greener streets that make the area a better place to live and encourage community interaction.

Speeding traffic and high pollution have created an unhealthy and dangerous neighbourhood in Brixton Hill, unwelcoming to pedestrians and children. Main roads designed for through traffic Рsuch as the south circular and A23 Brixton Hill Рsurround the ward but smaller roads through the ward can be used to short cut between them. Residents have complained about these issues for many years and surveys show strong support for action.

Working with the Womens Equality Party we are now asking Lambeth Council and TfL to make Brixton Hill Ward a Low Traffic Neighbourhood as part of the Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood project.
