Councillors misinformed?

On Saturday 20th January 2007 Peckham Vision held an information day to give all Southwark’s Councillor’s the opportunity to get to know the proposed tram depot site in Peckham, its current users and understand its future potential. One of the Councillors said they had been persuaded by the plan to build a depot on site because some years back officers told them it would regenerate Peckham by having housing and commerce on top of the depot. In fact, property experts say it would be too expensive and the current plans do not include this. The original reasons for Peckham being selected as a preferred depot location no longer stand up, and need to be looked at again.

The Councillors visited the Bussey building which is home to a wide variety of creative, business and social uses. From the top of the building they had a breathtaking view of London, and saw the extent of the 6 acre site to Consort and Brayards Rds, earmarked for the tram depot.
