date for your diary: The next council consultant’s Station Square workshop will be on 4 June at All Saints Church, more details here: http://tinyurl.com/lns6yyu

Slides from Council consultants 16 April 2015

Here are the slides from the Council’s Landolt & Brown 2nd workshop session on 16th April:
These give important details about Network Rail’s plans for the platform lifts, and Landolt & Brown’s ideas for the building on the corner of Blenheim Grove and Rye Lane, and the locations for public toilets. Also explains the complicated links between Platform 3 support and the Arcade building. Definitely worth taking a look at their short summary and some of the slides.

highlights from Station workshop 16 April 2015

The Council’s consultants Landolt & Brown reported at their workshop on  16th April:
* the way the physical supports for Platform 3 are linked into the north side of the station Arcade building is still being investigated by the architects. This means there needs to be an extra workshop (so 4 instead of 3). Once the Platform 3 supports are clarified they can develop designs for the new buildings, and they will present them at the additional workshop during May, date to be announced.

Station workshop TODAY 6.30pm – key issues

Council’s architects Landolt & Brown’s consultation workshop on the station redevelopment is TODAY 16th April 6.30pm – 8.30pm at All Saints Hall, in Blenheim Grove. This meeting may be the key culmination of the codesign process local people set in motion a year ago for the station developments. Although it has had its defects, in particular too limited a brief, it has produced new opportunities to make a contribution. A significant one is tonight. Below is a summary of points we have collected that are relevant to the workshop. This is probably the last workshop chance to discuss and contribute ideas for shaping the development of the buildings and spaces around the station, before the designs for the planning application are drawn up. So please take part if you can. There are several points to think about at this workshop linked to Landolt & Brown’s list of headings for the options (see https://www.facebook.com/PeckhamVision/posts/920498624639668 ).

17th March Peckham Rye Station square codesign workshop

Southwark Council email with latest news about the Station Gateway developments:
“Landolt + Brown have been appointed to take forward the designs for Peckham Rye Station square. The Peckham Rye Station square project has been commissioned by Southwark Council in partnership with the Greater London Authority to transform the area around the Station. The project will create a new square as a focal point for the community, and include new and refurbished buildings to make the area more uplifting and less congested. The first co-design workshop of the design stage will be held on Tuesday 17th March 2015 at 6.30pm at All Saints Church Hall on Blenheim Grove (see map below). We want to build on the co-design work previously undertaken and hear from you about how we can work together as the project moves forward. The project design team, led by architects Landolt + Brown, would like to explain some of their initial thinking and observations in the first part of the workshop. This will be followed by a presentation from the Council on associated town centre projects. Please join us.”

update on Peckham Rye station developments

This is an update on what we know about the Peckham Rye station developments.

  • There has been news from Brixton where Network Rail are planning a clear out of what are reported as successful long-standing businesses in railway arches for ‘refurbishment’, with promises of returning. It sounds familiar from a year ago at Peckham Rye station. This approach may yet return to Peckham as Dovedale Court and the Holly Grove buildings were not covered by the ‘co-design’ consultation… that was conducted last Autumn. So it seemed worth remarking on that somewhere: see Peckham Vision letter to SLP here: http://goo.gl/S1ZZkK.
