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:

Station Gateway consultation 30 Nov – points to think about

Message from Peckham Vision –  –  by email: This is a reminder of the Network Rail consultation on Saturday 30 November 11am – 3pm in the Old Waiting Room off platform 3 in Peckham Rye Station. The deadline for comments is 6th December. This is a once only chance to see and comment on what the newly commissioned Network Rail architects have to say about the way they will approach developing the planning application for the Network Rail buildings around Peckham Rye station. They promise a further event in January but this coming Saturday is the event to comment on the basic concepts about land use and buildings.
At the exhibition on Saturday it will be important to clarify and give views on:
*  what parts if any of the ‘preferred option’ will be used to develop the scheme for the planning application; see Notes below and the plan here: ;
* what height might any new buildings be and what would be their impact  on the adjacent streets, especially Blenheim Grove and Holly Grove, with the effect on their light and space;
* whether the site is appropriate for new additional housing along Blenheim Grove;
* whether the extent of the redevelopment is necessary to achieve the improvements needed;
* what effect such wholesale redevelopment would have on the small creative and leisure businesses taking root in the buildings on the site, and on the emergence of that new strand of local economic & social activity.
