In Brixton Tesco want to turn the George IV pub into an Express store.
Over 1,200 people have already signed the petition asking the council to save the George IV from becoming another Tesco. Campaigners are also encouraging residents to submit individual objection letters direct to the Council.Local residents and businesses are unhappy with the plans as the area of Brixton Hill is already saturated with supermarket stores. Tesco seeks to remove the railings at the front of the pub site, and turn the beer garden into a car park. The car park could have a serious impact on traffic flow on Brixton Hill, which is already a busy Red Route road.
