We want to enhance the social life of the street
Brixton Rec and Brixton Station Road Market are important to the area’s social and cultural life – they will be made more welcoming for a wider range of people.
New lighting of the Rec building will brighten Brixton Station Road and make it more welcoming at night.
Tree planting will bring nature to the street, and planting will be done in agreement with individual business owners. Trees were an important part of the Rec’s streetscape when it was originally designed. Damaged planters have already been removed.More places to sit and play are planned with changes to street furniture, while better signage will attract people to the market. Bike racks will also be relocated.
