The site of Brockley Common "Phase 2" - it can't come too soon!
Following my earlier, more prosaic list of personal wishes for Brockley, here is a more noble list of ambitions for the area, compiled by Stuart, from the Brockley Cross Action Group.
Some good progress has been made with a number of these initiatives, but they're looking for champions for some of these individual projects, so please click on the BCAG link from this page if you wish to get in touch and help make a difference to your local area. Thanks.
Phase 1a – temporary replacement of Coulgate Street walls
Network Rail delay due to costs

Estate Environments – Particularly Wickham Road and Clare Estates
