Another vital space could be on its way out of Brixton

Brixton Market landlord Hondo Enterprises has served Nour Cash and Carry with a section 25 notice, with the community pillar and legendary market space set to be closed in July, according to Brixton Buzz. The shop has been on site since 2002, with owners the Shaheen family having established their first business, Bargain Food Stores, a few doors down in 1997. Nour has long stood against proposals to redevelop its space: a previous landlord attempted to impose a 22 percent rent increase and was brought down to 11 after a show of community support; Eater understands that staff at the shop are organising a council petition. Under the terms of a section 25 notice, tenants can respond and ensure that landlords have to go to court to enforce it. Expect this story to evolve.
