Peckham Vision News – CoDesign: Urgent Action for comments

PECKHAM VISION NEWS – CoDesign: Urgent Action for comments

* An ‘Atlas of Aspirations’ is being prepared by the Council’s CoDesign consultants Ash Sakula,
summarising ‘outcomes and findings’ of the CoDesign process.
* The draft Atlas is here: Deadline for Comments is WED 5th NOVEMBER.
* Ash Sakula will submit the Atlas to Southwark Council at the end of this week. They say:
“”We need YOU…to give us feedback on the DRAFT ASPIRATIONS. Email us with your top 10
Aspirations from the list. If you feel that any Aspirations are not clear enough or that there are any
Aspirations that have not been represented then please email with your comments and feedback.””
* The Council’s consultants will be giving an update to the Peckham Community Council on Monday
10th November 7pm at Peckham Academy. Agenda: 

* The CoDesign remit has been limited to the creation of a square in front of the station between the
two rail viaducts. This has been a surprise to local people as it left out the development issues that
led to strong protests in early 2014 against proposals put forward by Network Rail.
* It has emerged that plans are still being developed for the rest of the site, including new taller
buildings on Blenheim Grove and Holly Grove.
* The consultants have been receiving views on the other parts of the original ‘Station Gateway’ site
and the area surrounding it. So if you have such comments, send them in as points to take into
account in the Atlas.

As time is now very short, here is a summary list of topics that have stimulated comments, and
which you can use to check if you have anything further you wish to say or need to be reflected in
the Atlas:
* Design of the new square, & services & facilities, including public toilets.
* The station building & access to the station platforms.
* Future of Holly Grove & Blenheim Grove commercial buildings.
* Preserving & restoring the cluster of Art Deco buildings in that area.
* Future of Dovedale Court and improving forecourts in Blenheim Grove.
* Opening up Eastern arches, & green pathways along the rail lines towards Queen’s Rd station.
* Public realm in central Rye Lane around the station site.
* Need for integrated town planning.
