The Council are in the midst of developing their planning policies for Peckham town centre. They have completed the Unitary Development Plan (UDP) for the borough's land use, and this includes a statement about certain commercial areas, including Peckham town centre. The next stage is the development of the PAAP (the Peckham Area Action Plan). The Council originally said that this would begin in February 2007, and then several dates subsequently. But it has now finally begun in March 2008 by the release of Future Peckham - a ‘vision paper’ and the PAAP Consultation Strategy - for public comment between 14 March 2008 and 25 April 2008. This will be followed in May by an ‘Issues and Options’ paper for consultation between May and July.

Transforming Central Rye Lane
Bussey Building courtyard.jpg

The land and buildings between Rye Lane and Copeland Road are a thriving mixed area of artists' studios, art galleries, a variety of small businesses, retail and creative industry, housing, faith and other community uses.
