Our Hero: London Council To Rename Street After David Bowie

Following the tragic death of David Bowie in January, fans from across the world have flooded to the singer’s hometown of Brixton to visit a tribute to the singer that can be found on the side of Morley’s department store in Tunstall Place. And today, Lambeth Council has officially confirmed that the mural has been listed – in order to ensure its protection – and the street upon which it is situated is set to be renamed after the music legend.

In a statement, they asserted that “Lambeth council is set to locally list the David Bowie mural beside Morley’s in Brixton that became a shrine to the artist who died in January. Local listing would protect the mural and the council is also considering renaming the area where the mural is in Tunstall Place. The council is in contact with Bowie’s family about the many suggestions for a permanent memorial, including statues and place naming.”

The singer’s family will have the final say in all decisions.
