town centre exhibition & meeting 14 March

This is a reminder of the important Peckham town centre exhibition and meeting this week on

7pm – 9pm  meeting
from 4pm     drop-in exhibition
at the CLF Art Cafe, Bussey building, 133 Rye Lane.
Light refreshments

As you will see from some details below, we have a number of achievements to celebrate. Some further reasons to come:

* to hear Benedict O’Looney give one of his informative and inspiring illustrated talks about the town centre history and what can be done to restore the buildings.

* to hear the latest news from senior Council people – Cllr Fiona Colley Regeneration Cabinet Member and Simon Bevan Head of Planning & Transport – on the significant developments relating to the town centre.

It so happens that 14th March is also the first day of the formal consultation on the Council’s Preferred Option for the PNAAP (the Area Action Plan). This is a significant new stage of deciding the future planning policy for Peckham, and anyone with an interest in that needs to read the document and make their comments. The PNAAP will be part of the exhibition from 4pm. So do drop in during 4-7pm to take advantage of that, and pick up your copy of this important document, and get advice on how to look for the aspects that most concern you. Comments deadline is 24th April. Further information –
