Halt the evictions of Brixton and Herne Hill's beloved businesses from the railway arches

This petition had 29,532 supporters


The businesses found in the arches on Atlantic Road, Brixton Station Road and Railton Rd in Brixton and Herne Hill are part of the fabric of the area. In Brixton, each one has been notified that they have 6 months to vacate their units to make way for the regeneration of the area.

It is vitally important that these businesses stay in Brixton, and are not thrown out of where some have been trading for over 30 years.

This petition calls on landlords Network Rail to immediately halt the planned evictions, pending a full consultation with all local businesses and the residents who use them

We also call on Lambeth Council to use everything in their power to prevent these evictions and fully support the residents.
