Vining Street Parklet
The High Streets team and the Brixton BID are working collaboratively on improvements to the public realm on Atlantic Road. A parklet including tables, seating and cycle parking is currently under construction on Vining Street.
We are working with local businesses to understand their priorities for how streets could be used in the future.
Unfortunately, there has been repeated criminal damage to the signage, cameras and other equipment used across all LTNS. We want to thank everyone who has reported the issues to the council and patience as we work to resolve the vandalism.
It is costing the Council money to replace and repair equipment. Additionally, residents who have sowed plants and flowers at their own expense have in some cases seen them cut down or torn up.
Cllr Danny Adilypour, joint Cabinet Member for Sustainable Transport, Environment & Clean Air, has said:
“People are entitled to express their views over our Low Traffic Neighbourhood trials, but there is no excuse for acts of criminal vandalism which put our residents at risk and this is not an effective way to engage with the council or fellow residents.
“Residents who oppose the schemes or would like to see improvements have many ways to constructively engage with the council, and we’re actively seeking their feedback. Vandalism poses a danger to the public, is criminal and will be treated as such.”
