Protect Peckham town centre from wrong kind of development – deputation 6 July

There is a residents’ deputation to the Community Council tomorrow 6th July on Monday evening, to save
Peckham town centre from the loss of retail space to the wrong kind of development.  We need
many local people there to show the Council there is widespread support to protect Peckham. There is also an online petition – please sign whether you can come or if you can’t: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/p/protectpeckham

Date: MONDAY 6th JULY at 7pm
Event: Peckham Community Council
Place: Harris Academy, 112 Peckham Road

PROTECTING RYE LANE’S RETAIL SPACES
Last April the Council lost some planning powers to control the change of use of premises in the
town centre. This means that they lost the power to stop retail spaces being turned into non retail
space. The deputation is asking the Council to return the powers it lost to aid better more informed
decision making. They can do this by issuing an ‘Article 4 direction’. They need to know a lot of
people want them to do this. You can see more info on this here:
https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/rye-lane-peckham-article-4-direction-petition

This is really important. If you agree with the need to protect retail space in Peckham town centre,
your support on the night is vital. So please come to this if you can – just 30 minutes is needed.
The deputation will be heard very close to 7pm so getting there by 7pm is important and it will all be
over shortly afterwards..

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 ).
