The Brixton Society is urging residents to have their say on plans for nine-storey block of flats on the site of a central Brixton pub.
Developers are holding an exhibition on their plans for the Canterbury Arms pub, Canterbury Crescent, on Thursday (June 27) in International House from 2pm until 8pm.
They want local people to respond before they submit a formal planning application to Lambeth Council later this year.
The plans were unveiled at a meeting in International House on June 28. they include 40 residential units and a community use function on part of the ground floor.
The chairman of Brixton Society, Bill Linskey, said: “It is important at this stage that as many people as possible have their say on the plans.
“If people don’t say anything then the developer can turn around and say that no one is bothered about what happens here.”
The development will be the first move in the wider development around Popes Road, including International House and the site of the temporary ice skating rink.
In a letter to Brixton Blog last week, developers May Developments said: “This scheme will therefore be an important first phase of the regeneration of the immediate area and it is hoped that the quality of the building we are proposing will have a positive effect on the adjacent sites.
“Once the adjoining sites are brought forward by the council, it will form part of a coherent new mixed-use area. It is intended that our scheme will also help to improve community safety and make Canterbury Crescent and the link through to the Rec and market more welcoming for pedestrians.”
