Station Gateway consultation 30 Nov 2013

from Peckham Vision Facebook:  The consultation boards from Saturday’s event in the Old Waiting Room (see photo) are now up on the architects’ blog: http://www.peckhamryestation.com . It also has the official Feedback Form there for comments (which was used also on Saturday). The deadline for comments is this coming SATURDAY 7th December. see the boards there http://peckhamryestation.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/peckham-rye-station-event-1-final-291113_a3.pdf Perhaps the key one is Board 4 which identifies the significant questions about the architects’ thoughts for redevelopment of the Network Rail site all around the station. These would require as expected the removal of the buildings in front to create the new square. But they also extend to the buildings alongside in Holly Grove and Blenheim Grove and behind the station. These buildings currently accommodate in Holly Grove the newly opened Hannah Barry Gallery, and in Blenheim Grove The Sunday Painter, Peckham Refreshment Rooms, Bar Story, Peckham Springs and the soon to open microbrewery. Do they really need to be demolished when they are regenerating the area themselves in the existing buildings? These and some of the other points to think about in all this are on the short briefing note we produced for visitors to the consultation here: http://www.peckhamvision.org/wiki/images/f/fe/13.11.29_Gateway_Questions_v5.pdf
