When the building of the City Heights Academy was approved, Lambeth Council promised the youths of the community a Youth Centre. We campaigned for this through 2015 and now we’ve won. Details are here

So far in this campaign we have:

  • In April we designed this leaflet giving background information
  • In July we handed in a petition to Lambeth Council with over 400 signatures demanding the facility be open. The story was covered in the Brixton Blog
  • In August we received an official response to our petition from the council
  • In September we received confirmation that the ground floor of the Dip Site (the sports grounds and the changing rooms) are available for community groups to hire
  • In November a youth club started in the new Dip Site

You can see the school’s original proposal for community use of the leisure facilities here (read from page 7). Full background to the campaign is here
