‘Brixton Windrush’ ward proposed for south London

P

arts of south London are set to be renamed to honour the Windrush generation and erase links with slave traders.

It also backed the scrapping of three Lambeth wards named after people with links to the slave trade — Vassall, Thurlow Park and Tulse Hill.

The Brixton Windrush ward was one of several suggestions to the Boundary Commission from the Liberal Democrats to acknowledge “the contribution of the Windrush Generation and their communities to the life of the borough”.

Public consultation on the proposals is now open until April 12.
