plan for alley alongside Peckham Multi Plex cinema

email to Peckham Town Centre Forum

please see email below about a young people’s project to brighten up, with mirrors and lights, the alley alongside the Peckham Multi Plex. If it is the right plan, this would be very beneficial to our town centre, and especially in the summer with all the thousands of visitors to the Hannah Barry Gallery and Frank’s Cafe. They will soon be applying for planing permission, so NOW is the time to get your views in about the proposals, to give the project the benefit of our local knowledge. Read more of this post
