An urgent meeting over the eviction of traders from the Brixton railway arches is being called by the Federation of Small Businesses.
The organisation is hoping to put its concerns to site owners Network Rail a month after traders, some of who have been in the arches for decades, were told they would have to go.
Network Rail wrote to businesses on Atlantic Road, Brixton Station Road and Pope’s Road this week to inform them they will have to vacate their plots this summer as part of the renovation work.
It says traders are unaware if they’ll be able to return to the site once redevelopment work is complete.
There are also fears that if they do return, rent could be tripled.
Matthew Jaffa, from the Federation, explains more.
