Peckham 4 sites walk & New Southwark Plan (NSP)

To Peckham Vision mailing list

This email gives information on the next phase of the Council’s consultation about their ‘Preferred Option’ of the New Southwark Plan (NSP), which is an important document about land use in Southwark. It is used by developers, so it is essential for individual residents and communities across Southwark to get involved in this process, if they are to have any say in shaping their futures.

FOUR SITES WALK SATURDAY 1ST APRIL 11am-2pm
To help people engage with this very dry topic, we are organising a tour of the four major redevelopment sites proposed for Peckham in the New Southwark Plan (NSP), finishing with a round-up discussion in Peckham Vision’s Bussey studio. The round-up will cover what has been learnt on the walk, the issues raised by the proposals and how to make comments in the consultation.

We hope the walk and discussion will give interesting insights into the developments happening in Peckham town centre. See further information about the NSP below.

If you would like to take part in the walk, please book a free place here: http://goo.gl/tHGLzP .  Further information and briefing about the four sites and the tour and the assembly place will be emailed to all those who register to come.

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.
