A petition has been started to call on Network rail to immediately stop the planned eviction of dozens of Brixton businesses from arches on Station Road and Atlantic Road.
Network Rail staff visited businesses, like A & C Continental Deli, yesterday informing them that all shops in arches between Brixton Road and Popes Road had just 6 months to vacate their premises, to make way for redevelopment of the site.
Brixton Blog this evening started a petition calling on rail bosses to stop the eviction plans, before carrying out a full discussion with traders and local residents and customers.
The petition – signed by 50 people in its first 10 minutes – also calls on Lambeth council to do more to support affected business owners and put pressure on Network Rail.
Sign the petition, and share, here.
