local amenity group the Streatham Society leading a successful partnership bid for funding from central government for environmental improvements. Work started in winter 2003-04 with the refurbishment of Streatham Green and repaving and relighting of the High Road between St Leonard’s Church and the Odeon Cinema. In 2005 Streatham Green won the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association ‘London Spade’ award for best public open space scheme in the capital.
Wellfield Road, which had previously been known as Leigham Lane, was renamed in honour of the famed natural springs of Streatham Wells, one of which can still be found today in the nearby Rookery Victorian Gardens next to Streatham Common. From the early 1860s a number of attractive terraces and small cottage properties were built on Wellfield road, which underlined the village’s increasing popularity and reputation. Indeed, the Streatham Village area today remains a highly sought-after location, especially due to its proximity to Central London and convenient public transport services
Streatham Festival was established in 2002. It has grown to a festival with over 50 events held in an array of locations, from bars to churches and parks to youth centres, attracting over 3,000 people.
In August 2011 Streatham was selected as one of the areas to benefit from Round 1 of the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund
The Streatham Hub project involves the demolition of Streatham Ice Arena, Streatham Leisure Centre and the former Streatham Bus Garage, and their replacement with a new leisure centre and a Tesco store with 250 flats above it. The new ice rink and leisure centre are scheduled to open in late 2013. The Hideaway Jazz venue continues Streatham’s long entertainment tradition and was voted the UK’s ‘Best Jazz Venue’ in 2011.
Living in Brixton
Brixton is a district in the London Borough of Lambeth in South London, England. Brixton is mainly residential with a prominent street market and substantial retail sector. It is a multiethnic community, with around a quarter of its population being of African and Caribbean descent. It lies within Inner South London and is bordered by Stockwell, Clapham, Streatham, Camberwell, Tulse Hill and Herne Hill. There is debate regarding whether Brixton’s recent renaissance is regeneration or gentrification. Some believe the area has slowly undergone a process of gentrification since the 1990s and has resulted in many wealthy middle class individuals taking advantage of the area’s location and the thriving Bohemian art scene. However, others argue that the area is undergoing exciting regeneration. In recent years Brixton has hosted a regular farmers’ market on Station Road, as well as Pop-up restaurants and pop-up shops. New art galleries, delicatessens, bars, cafes and vintage clothing stores, particularly in and around Brixton Village Market have also opened, which some believe is gentrifying the area in a similar way to that in nearby Clapham.
Brixton was awarded The Great Neighbourhood Award 2013 (covering the UK and Ireland) by The Academy of Urbanism.
The Brixton Pound was launched on 17 September 2009 by Transition Town Brixton. The Brixton Pound is a local currency that is available as an alternative to the pound sterling. The first trading day of the Brixton Pound was on 18 September 2009 with 80 local businesses accepting the currency. On 29 September 2011, the Brixton Pound launched an electronic version of the currency where users can pay by text message.
Brixton Market is open every day selling a range of Afro-Caribbean products and reflects other communities in the local area with Indian and Vietnamese supermarkets and South American butchers amongst the shops and stalls. London Farmers’ Markets opened a farmers market on Brixton Station Road in September 2009. It is open every Sunday from 10am-2pm.
