Station redevelopment – Sat 18 Jan 3pm public meeting, 11-5 drop-in

Message from Peckham Vision 
IMPORTANT CONSULTATION  on development proposals for Peckham Rye Station Gateway site:
SATURDAY 18th January
3.00pm Public Meeting – architects’ presentation & discussion
11am – 5pm drop-in exhibition;
at Rye Lane Baptist Chapel, opposite Highshore Rd.
This consultation will be on the outline design proposals for the station Gateway project, and the first opportunity for a public discussion about the way to create the new public square in front of the station, and to improve the rest of the land and buildings around the station. Comments are asked for by 26 January.  If you are available please make sure you get to the meeting at 3pm and the drop-in beforehand. This is urgent and may be the only chance to influence the scale and nature of this development. 
A key question in considering and appraising the proposals is what effect they will have on the young growing creative economy in central Peckham – would the development encourage and support it, or would it seriously or terminally jeopardise it?
There have been local concerns over the last year that the proposals being developed between the Council, GLA and Network Rail, without public discussion, seemed as if they could be too drastic in the areas alongside and behind the station, and bring to a halt the growing creative economy there. The Council has said that their intention is to build on the creative industries in the area. On Saturday the proposals will show if and how they intend that to be done.
