SAVE OUR SHOPS: campaign demands transparency in council planning process

Arches Atlantic RoadThe Save Brixton Arches campaign has written a letter to Lambeth council demanding it improves the transparency of its planning process.

Last month the council announced that it was proposing changes to the way it consults the public on planning matters.

However, Save Brixton Aches, which is campaigning against Network Rail’s evictions of tenants under Brixton’s railway arches, have posted a letter on their website saying they “very concerned” by the proposals.

The letter asks for a full assessment of the current community involvement strategy and clearer statements on what the suggested changes are.

It also recommends a number of ways Lambeth could improve its public consultations.

You can read the letter online and add your name to show your support.

The petition to halt the evictions has now reached over 20,000 signatures, add yours here.
