Brixton Challenge

Group

An urban regeneration scheme. The aim was to develop the arts and shopping areas to generate income from people visiting the area, but locals argued money is not going to the people that need it. Refurbished the  covered arcades of Brixton Market. Planned projects included a £44m shopping development over the Tube station, housing association expansion, a five-screen art house cinema, community facilities and refurbishment of Brixton Academy music venue and The Fridge. Looks like it may have been set up in 1993 and was in trouble by 1994 but still going in 1998.
