    Both look impressive. Hope one comes to fruition. I like the second one personally. How long will the site be available before it is redeveloped?

    Eighteen months max.

    Looks great - should be another point of interest for Brixton as a tourist destination. All the people who have moved into the area will love it!
    (I'm sounding bitter today :D)

    Everytime I see some trendy young person in my neck of the woods, I think they have accidently stayed on the 196, missing their Brixton stop- here's to wishful thinking and hoping they won't be all moving here anytime soon (although I've noticed an increase in joggers - early signs :( ).

    That's the one I'd have chosen. Can only imagine they expect it to carry on for longer than 18months - can't see otherwise how it will properly get off the ground before it has to close.

    Who votes on the permanent use for the site and is there any way urban / we / residents can throw spanners into the likely developers' works?
    Just curious.

    I've heard from some of the people familiar with this process that it's far more likely to be something like 3 years than 18 months.

    Their bid was all about local sustainability and involvement, but if tourists want to come along and gawk, I'm sure that will be fine too.

    If a recent pub conversation is anything to go by, I might be getting involved with this.

    It sounds good and I'm sure these organisations have used all the right words to plug into any available funding and will do wonderful things however we were fairly laid back when the Spacemakers arrived and look what happened there!:

    The Edible Bus Stop folk are decent. They did a great job in fighting their corner to keep a patch of land along Landor Road in public use.

    Some pics.

    Tricky Skills I love what the edible bus stop has done in Landor Road. I'm not quite sure what is happening with their Norwood one but there it looks like lots of circular planting spaces are being created.

    I thought they were going to give some of that area to car parking for market/shop staff?

    I believe that's what the grey area is. You can see the vehicle access point behind the "music box"

    Ah, thanks, that's good. The market federation have been fighting for car parking for a long time, glad Lambeth hasn't gone back its word. I love the plans, and have already signed up to do something there. Its exciting. And the team are VERY committed to ensuring that local projects/traders, etc take priority over 'outsiders'.

    Entirely reasonable fears, although I don't think this project is really directly comparable with the Village.

    I had a good chat with some of the people involved in the Edible Bus Stop and was rather encouraged.

    I took a pic of that a while ago and was going to write up about it but haven't found any more detail.

    I got an email asking for anyone interested in office space. I registered interest have not heard anything back yet - must have been 2-3 months ago.

    As far as I know and it's going to be there for up to 5 years.
