Aylesham Centre development – local views from 2016 events

Each year, Peckham Vision takes its stall and mobile exhibition about the town centre developments to several community fairs and festivals. Over the years since 2008, we have discussed the town centre developments with hundreds of local people. In 2016 one of the displays was about the Aylesham Centre redevelopment, one of the 4 sites in the draft New Southwark Plan (NSP) now out for consultation. We asked people to put comments on post-it notes.

All the comments were typed up and are shown in this document: http://www.peckhamvision.org/wiki/images/4/4e/PV_events_Aylesham_summary_v7_yellow_post-its_v7_-_FINAL.pdf  Selections and summaries of the comments are shown to illustrate the themes that emerged under these headings: • Scale & height of buildings • Street scene • Housing • Uses on the site • Facilities on the site • Consultation process.

133 Rye Lane Planning Application

5 December 2015 Great Success: The developer has withdrawn the planning application for change of use to 11 luxury flats and extensions upwards and downwards, and has declared they want to work with local people for the long term non-residential future of the building. This is a success for the building, for the businesses that would have been so badly affected if it went ahead, and for the town centre to get a development that suits the needs of the town centre and that isn’t at odds with it. But there is an even greater significance to it. This developer listened to the community, dropped their residential plan, and said that “by taking a longer term interest in this building, we hope to develop good relationships with our neighbours and be a part of all the great things which are happening and will no doubt continue to happen in Peckham.”
The key thing is that a property developer has listened and changed tack and wants to collaborate with local people and businesses. This is a huge success in the battle across London where local interests are being overridden all the time by the inwardly focussed corporate property development world. An important part of this particular victory is that this shows it does not HAVE to be local v developer, but we can be all in it together to get a good result for all. It just about makes the pain of the existing hopeless system bearable to have this result. Welcome to these developers in pioneering a collaborative development approach.

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.

Judicial review of Garden Bridge plan

Serious issues have been raised by the plan for the ‘Garden Bridge’ from near the Oxo tower on the South Bank to the Temple tube station on the north. Michael Ball a local resident and community activist in Lambeth has bravely challenged the decision to grant planning permission, and has been granted his request for a judicial review of the decision. Please support this important community action to have the decision reviewed. The case will be heard in June 2015. Sign petition: http://goo.gl/DtdwLr More info: http://tcos.org.uk/.
