Mayor’s High Street Fund: Brixton street market design consultation extended until 4th September

28th July 2015 / Posted by CRP Team

Lambeth Council has extended its consultation on design proposals for Brixton’s famous street market, including the iconic Electric Avenue, until the 4th of September 2015.

Following extensive local consultation, design proposals developed by architects Gort Scott, with the support of market experts Quarterbridge, have been published on line on the Future Brixton website.

Working with the Brixton Market Traders Federation, Brixton BID and a host of other local stakeholders, Lambeth Council is seeking to create a more attractive environment for traders, residents and shoppers;
increase the number of traders, shoppers and trade; and reverse the decline of the much loved street markets – so they can continue to provide jobs and serve the local community.

Improvements to Brixton’s street market are being supported by more than £1m of investment from the Mayor of London’s High Street Fund and the London Borough of Lambeth. The project is being programme managed by Cross River Partnership Place Making Project Manager, Owain Jones.
