Conserving Peckham’s historic assets 23 Jan 2-6pm

From Peckham Vision Facebook:  Are you interested in Peckham town centre’s historic buildings? If so, try to get to Peckham Library between 2pm – 6pm on Thursday 23 January to see the latest news and discuss the draft Conservation Area Management Plan. Peckham’s historic buildings span over 300 years. Council officers will be there to explain the conservation work and give the latest information on how the historic buildings can be restored in the next few years. The oldest from the 17th century are on the High Street, and then also along Rye Lane range through the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian eras and the different architectural styles of the 20th century. Peckham has a rare collection of buildings covering the period when London evolved from a set of rural villages into the huge cosmopolitan city of today.

protecting our historic heritage – volunteers needed


As you know Peckham town centre is now a designated Conservation Area. This means that alterations to historic buildings need local authority consent. However that is not much good if property owners and property occupiers are unaware of this and no one is paying close attention to what is going on.

That detailed survey work has not been done yet. Read more of this post

This new betting shop application, for 96 Peckham High St, follows hot on the heels of another one on the corner of Bournemouth Road and Rye Lane – where it would take over two brand new retail units. It looks as if there are three betting shops already, and this would bring it to five. There has to be a limit to how many there can be in Peckham town centre.
