Station Gateway consultation 30 Nov 2013

from Peckham Vision Facebook:  The consultation boards from Saturday’s event in the Old Waiting Room (see photo) are now up on the architects’ blog: . It also has the official Feedback Form there for comments (which was used also on Saturday). The deadline for comments is this coming SATURDAY 7th December. see the boards there Perhaps the key one is Board 4 which identifies the significant questions about the architects’ thoughts for redevelopment of the Network Rail site all around the station. These would require as expected the removal of the buildings in front to create the new square. But they also extend to the buildings alongside in Holly Grove and Blenheim Grove and behind the station. These buildings currently accommodate in Holly Grove the newly opened Hannah Barry Gallery, and in Blenheim Grove The Sunday Painter, Peckham Refreshment Rooms, Bar Story, Peckham Springs and the soon to open microbrewery. Do they really need to be demolished when they are regenerating the area themselves in the existing buildings? These and some of the other points to think about in all this are on the short briefing note we produced for visitors to the consultation here:

Peckham’s organic development

From Peckham Vision Facebook: Peckham Vision was invited to the launch of Team London Bridge’s Creative Network held 13th November 2013 at the Fashion Textile Museum in Bermondsey St ( We were glad to contribute by sharing Peckham’s story. Eileen Conn gave a visual tour with photos of the wide variety of artistic and cultural activities now produced by local creative enterprises on the development sites and in the adaptable buildings in the central Rye Lane area – Copeland Park site, Bussey building, Blenheim Grove & adjoining arches, the multi-storey car park, and in Holly Grove & Elm Grove. She told the story of the last 10 years of the community action led by Peckham Vision which had highlighted and publicised the potential of sites and buildings threatened with demolition, and their subsequent use by the creative industries which further supported the community campaigns. This blend of Peckham community action and creative enterprises has led to organic regeneration. A key lesson from this Peckham experience is the need to nurture adaptable, lower cost permanent spaces for organic development.
