This is the restored Old Waiting Room at the station. What kind of use would be well used? What would make Peckham town centre an attractive place to visit? What would make the area more attractive for other commercial investment? What would be a good business proposal? Would you like to see:
- Refreshments, & what kinds of refreshments?
- Art gallery exhibitions?
- Training workshops for young people?
- Community meetings?
- Theatre performances?
- Office & workshop spaces?
- Other ideas?
Everyone is asked to send their suggestions and comments to email@example.com

This is the secret room above the ticket hall, brought back into life by a local community initiative funded by small grants, 2008 – 2011, from the Community Council CGS programme. The Community Council applauded at their 8th December 2010 meeting the latest reports and pictures, and started the discussion about suitable commercial uses to make the best of the wonderful space.
Further funds are being sought to continue the restoration to the external staircase, & to improve the station walkways. This would be the public entrance to the space and make it useable for public activities.
Local residents are developing a social enterprise project to bid for the lease from Network Rail for a multi purpose flexible venue. For more information, see brief here, and blog here http://peckhamresidents.wordpress.com and .
