Aylesham Centre development – local views from 2016 events

Each year, Peckham Vision takes its stall and mobile exhibition about the town centre developments to several community fairs and festivals. Over the years since 2008, we have discussed the town centre developments with hundreds of local people. In 2016 one of the displays was about the Aylesham Centre redevelopment, one of the 4 sites in the draft New Southwark Plan (NSP) now out for consultation. We asked people to put comments on post-it notes.

All the comments were typed up and are shown in this document: http://www.peckhamvision.org/wiki/images/4/4e/PV_events_Aylesham_summary_v7_yellow_post-its_v7_-_FINAL.pdf  Selections and summaries of the comments are shown to illustrate the themes that emerged under these headings: • Scale & height of buildings • Street scene • Housing • Uses on the site • Facilities on the site • Consultation process.

The document is being sent to the developers and their consultants and published through Peckham Vision’s communication channels to contribute to the discussion. This community exercise over several months in 2016, organised by Peckham Vision quite separately from the developers workshops in November 2016, produced similar and complementary local responses showing their consistency with different audiences: http://www.ayleshamcentrepeckham.co.uk/workshops

The developers have said they will be organising further workshops and exhibitions in the next few months. We Peckham Vision will be sending out further information via email and social media about the issues raised by this development, and the other 3 development sites, and holding further discussions.
