Peckham in the Evening Standard & in Public Hearings

the Evening Standard Magazine has a 4 page spread about Peckham: Peckhamania: out on the town in London’s newest hotspot
Meanwhile local people survived the marathon of the Public Hearings of the PNAAP (Peckham & Nunhead Area Action Plan) – from 23rd July to 1st August. 15 local residents appeared for different topics, and several residents came to support. Only those who had sent in written objections last December could speak.
The Government Inspector led round-table discussions on questions he had devised from the submitted objections, relating to the future of Peckham’s economic, social and environmental well being.
Major issues were:
* damaging impact of proposed tall buildings;
* future of the multi storey car park, cinema & Bold Tendencies;
* role & protection of the creative industries in the local economy;
* protection of the creative enterprises in the Arches on the station development site;
* the plight of young people in Peckham;
* how to create real affordable housing;
* the need for a proactive food growing strategy;
* the lack of a coherent strategy for cycling.
The Inspector can identify for change only matters which are fundamental to the effectiveness of the Plan. His report is expected in 2 or 3 months when we will know if there is to be further consultation.
