Public toilets in the station development

At last! Discussion about public toilets for Rye Lane in the area around Peckham Rye station. CoDesign covered the topic yesterday in the CoDesign shop drop in. This is the result of the local public toilets petition last year with over 4000 signatures. See : This is an important topic for the future design of the station. So if you have any ideas don’t forget to get them in.  Public toilets are vital components in creating sustainable, accessible, inclusive cities. Badly run, public toilets can be transmitters of disease. But public toilets are essential as contributors to the health and well-being of society; see research reports: This is a national issue: Can Peckham show how to do it well?

Nick Cobb’s amazing model of multistorey car park in 2114

Come and see Nick Cobb’s amazing model of Peckham’s now famous multi-storey car park set 100 years in the future: 22-25 Sep. Private view 23 Sep 6.30-9pm. Nick says: “After an unexplained apocalyptic event Peckham and presumably London beyond is in ruins. A hundred years has passed and survivors have returned to the city to live and scavenge. But all is well with a cheery scene of blossoming cherry trees in spring depicted.”
