You are on right track. I had meeting few weeks ago where Council Officer said that they wanted to do something to improve the "poor" side of Brixton Station Road. That Network Rail will at some point finish the refurbishment of the arches. Leaving the "poor" side opposite the regenerated arches. That the Council wanted to do something about the "poor" side. At one point in meeting a certain person, who I won't name, said the clientele of the shops on the "poor" side was putting people off coming to the Brixton Rec. Some of us queried what "poor side" meant. Backtracking by officer. I actually felt a bit sorry for the officer. What he let slip in an unguarded comment as how Brixton is discussed in higher echelons of the Council. We all know this. Well some of us here. Some posters have a problem understanding this. Which is why I relate this anecdote. Ive censored it up to a point. As someone who has some long term involvement in local Brixton issues and engaging with Council I don't feel that present administration in Council and senior officers really want to oppose gentrification if Brixton.
