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/.

Rights to nominate community assets workshop 14 March 2015

On 14th March working with Civic Voice, we held a workshop in our Bussey studio for 24 supporters. Thanks to Sarah, Kathryn and Jenny from Civic Voice to support us in discussing the Localism Act and the power it gives communities to protect buildings and open spaces they value. This means communities can ask their local council to list certain assets as being of value to the community. If an asset is listed and comes up for sale, the new right will give 6 months to put together a bid to buy it. This gives communities an increased chance to save much loved shops, pubs or other local facilities.

It gave local people the right to stop the sale of the Ivy House pub and the time to get the funds together to buy it. The nomination and listing of the Peckham Liberal Club gave the members time to think again about the sale. In both cases the listings resulted in the buildings with all their wonderful facilities being in community ownership. More info on this new community power: http://www.civicvoice.org.uk/campaigns/assets-of-community-value  Civic Voice are encouraging all civic community groups to take advantage of this. In our workshop we identified dozens of potential local buildings and spaces to investigate. We are now drawing up a community action plan for this. We will circulate the information soon so that others in and around Peckham can start developing their own plans.
