BACKGROUND
The next formal stage for the Area Action Plan for Peckham and Nunhead (PNAAP) is now under way. The Council is consulting on a report setting out their preferred option on a number of important issues, but also consulting further on other important issues. See their detailed message below.

The new planning report is the culmination of many years of discussions, and is now at a key stage of decisions about what the preferred options will be. It is a really important opportunity to find out what is happening and also to give your own views on any issues that are important for you.

You can see the report on-line at http://www.southwark.gov.uk/futurepeckham (download the doc called Peckham and Nunhead Area Action Plan Towards a preferred option PDF)

It is a big document so if you need to read it in hard copy you can get one by giving your name and postal address via phone: 0207 525 5471 or email: planningpolicy@southwark.gov.uk
