Taylor McWilliams, Managing Partner of Hondo Enterprises, said:
“We are very pleased that our proposed development, which will deliver 2,000 jobs for Brixton and £2.8m every year for the local economy, has been approved by the elected members of Lambeth’s planning committee.
However, we fully appreciate this has been seen as divisive by some so we commit today to redoubling our efforts to work in partnership with the local community.”
‘As we move forward, and as agreed with the committee, we will work with all elements of the local community to ensure that our scheme delivers benefits for them.
Pope’s Road was conceived in extensive consultation with local stakeholders and we want the community’s voice to be heard on this landmark scheme for Brixton.
In addition to the affordable workspace and £1.875m funding for skills and employment, over the next few months we will set up a Community Liaison Group. This group will look to identify and map how the local community can engage with this project.
We look forward to getting started on putting our plans for the site on Pope’s Road into action and delivering a project that will benefit the people of Brixton for generations to come.’
