No questions about drug dealing as I recall. Have times really changed that much???
Drug dealing problems on Brixton Station Road have been blamed on the presence of Pop by small local business.

Something the Council don't want to hear.

Most of drug dealing has been pushed out to the estates. Suspicion is that Council wanted central Brixton cleaned up. Council tenants don't matter. Not being part of Nu Brixton.

So no surprise that no questions.

Lambeth is conducting a 'Brixton Evening and Night Time Survey' via Survey Monkey.

Brixton Evening and Night Time Survey

I think the deadline is tonight. Sorry for the short notice, I've only just found out about it, and apologies if it's been posted before.
Thanks for this. Filled it in.

Same as shakespearegirl put in about more toilets. I also said free public toilets and reopen the toilets on Windrush Square.

I said I feel safe in central Brixton. Which is true. I always have even when I lived in central Brixton.

I put cleaning is poor, no more late night clubs or "restaurants". I want more late night retail shopping.

I said more affordable places.

As a side note Lambeth has got another load of free money from Sadiq - Brixton is now a "Creative Enterprise Zone". Was at a meeting discussing it last month. I said this project should put some of its grant money into keeping affordable spaces for locals.

Lambeth advertising on it here in Love Lambeth. The Council's online Pravda.
Love Lambeth

I did notice several tick boxes about begging and homelessness.

I should have picked up on that and said I didn't have problem with it.

( Other then no one should need to be homless or beg).

In hindsight Council want survey that shows cracking down in begging is supported.

So upsetting to see all the belongings of the 414 Club in the street late tonight after they were ruthlessly evicted.

They've lived there for over 30 years. I hope the cunts responsible get what's coming to them one way or another.

Absolutely sickening. This is a full page advert in Time Out. No doubt there's similar ones in the Far East. BRX my fucking arse.

Unfortunately this revolving eyesore is being built by my so-called Social Housing Provider Par Excellence (sic) Network Homes who are clearly UNFIT FOR PURPOSE. A one-bedroom flat STARTS at well in excess of HALF A MILLION SQUIDS!!!! Three beds is a touch less than ONE MILLION SQUIDS!!! And that is allegedly "AFFORDABLE" although, to be fair, they didn't specify by which deranged definition they were relying as proof of such a spurious claim. And BY THE WAY I HAVE A FOI RESPONSE STATING THAT THE MORE THAN 1,000
HOMES IN THE FORMER EAST STOCKWELL NEIGHBOURHOOD OFFICE AREA WERE GIVEN TO NETWORK AS THEY WERE VALUED AT NOTHING BEING IN SICH A TERRIBLE STATE AT THE TIME OG TRANSFER. Quite clearly mass fraud and those respo able must be charged criminally and imprisoned. Eno. P.S. This goes for countless other Lambeth Council former housing area offices too. YUK!!!

It is great - as well as touching scenes from Brixton pubs (the old Coach and Horses was apparently Chris Steele-Perkins regular haunt) there are some amazing pictures of teenagers from 1970s Brixton at a reggae event in Brockwell Park and at a Vining St(?) street party who must now be grandparents of kids the same age.

Apparently a number of visitors have already recognised some people in photos.

For anyone looking to find that Chris Steele-Perkins 'IN BRIXTON' show at Photofusion over the next month...

Although Photofusion new address (since April) is International House, the entrance and gallery space is actually in the old highwalk-level entrance lobby to International House, which is accessed from the ramp or stairs up to Brixton Rec from Brixton Station Road.

Staggeringly crap photos taken on my battered Samsung phone.

What's happened to their old space? Has it been swallowed up into the socialite billionaire DJs empire of foodie hedonism?

Don’t forget the Thatcher photo that was credited as being taken in Brixton market but was acutely a Tory photo opp in the markets of the East end.

Thanks for the photos. I haven't seen the exhibition yet.

Photofusion have managed to re open the old walkway between International House and the Brixton Rec. Which I think is really positive.

When the Rec and International House were built the walkway was part of the original development. But has been closed off for years.

The scientologists are doing a brisk trade today. Their new spot outside Pret is a prime location. I can't decide how much I care about the consequences of their delusioneering. I suppose they do about the same amount of damage as christian churches, and far less than the conservative and UKIP parties. The ignorant are taking over the world. Late stage capitalism is unstoppable. Apres moi, le deluge.

Those cunts stole urban75's design once.

My stress levels rise as Scientologists set up shop in the centre of Brixton
