The SW9 postcode covers the area of Brixton. It neighbours on South Lambeth in the West, the SW2 part of Brixton in the South, Camberwell in the West and Kennington in the North.
It is a relatively densely populated are with a very busy high street (Brixton Road) and only a few green spaces. The green spaces that are here are generally smaller in size. Slade Gardens, Max Roach Park, Wyck Gardens, Laughborough Park are some of these smaller parks providing some space to relax to the local residents.
SW9 is incredibly well connected with public transportation. The Brixton Underground Station allows access to Victoria Line that runs through central London all the way to Walthamstow in the North-East. Stockwell, Oval and Clapham North Stations are located on the Northern line which due to running on two Branches covers a huge part of London. From Edgware, High Barnet, King's Cross, Charring Cross all the way to Brixton.
The Loughborough Junction Station located in the South-Eastern corner of the postcode also allows local residents the access to Thameslink and Southeastern rail services thusly providing Brixton with access to many areas outside of London in a very convenient manner.
The way these Underground and train stations are spread along the border of SW9 creates a situation where the residents of the postcodes are almost never further than 10 minute walk away from an important transport hub.
This has allowed for many of the city professionals looking to purchase a home to move down to Brixton and start their lives and families here. Many young Londoners have also opted to move to Brixton for the convenience in transportation and for London standards reasonable rents. The 18-29 and 30-44 age groups are considerably more represented here than in London as a whole. It is probably the youngest postcode we deliver to.
The average income is also some 30% higher compared to the London average with almost 75% of the locals describing themselves as associate professionals, professionals, managers or directors.
Brixton started it's life as an affluent suburb of London in the mid 19th century. There are still some remnants of this era with a some streets lined with beautiful Victorian terraced homes. During the Second World War however Brixton was very heavily bombed and most of the 19th century architecture has disappeared. After the local authorities have cleared the worst of the damage a lot of council housing was built in the area. This was followed by a large influx of Irish and Jamaican immigrants and these groups still have an impact on the current feel of Brixton.
As you can see SW9 is one of the postcodes that most benefits from a well made mapping system. There are thousands of homes here that are absolutely perfect for leaflet distribution. In order to conduct the most effective campaign possible these must be distinguished from the hard-to-deliver places and council housing. Some of our distributors are local to SW9 and as such we combine their local knowledge of the area with our rigorous approach to creating distribution maps. This allows us to run the most efficient and effective campaigns in Brixton possible.
