A public meeting is being held to oppose the redevelopment of Lambeth College’s Brixton Hill campus.
Arranged by staff at the college the meeting, entitled Stop Education Attacks, is a reaction to Lambeth College’s announcement that the site could be sold to property developers.
The proposal for the centre, described by the college as “underused, in poor condition and expensive to maintain”, would be either a complete redevelopment of the site as housing, or part of the site while rebuilding college facilities on the remaining land.
Staff believe the redevelopment will have adverse affects on the education of Brixton students, and are launching a campaign to stop it.
The meeting will take place at London Town Hall on Monday 14 October between 6pm and 8pm.
Speakers will include Mandy Brown from the University and College Union and an ESOL student.
