====PECKHAM RYE STATION DEVELOPMENT====
'''Background''' The lead up to the Co-Design process started in 2013 when there were indications that the Council was planning to seek possession of all Network Rail’s land around the station at once so clearing out all the businesses. This led to two deputations to the Council [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway/2011-2013#PV_Deputation_to_Cabinet_to_stop_wholesale_clearance_of_businesses_on_station_site_16_April_2013|April 2013]] and [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway/2011-2013#Deputation_22nd_October_2013|October 2013]] and a [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway/2011-2013#Revised_Council_position_on_station_plans_June_2013_.26_Scrutiny_meeting_20_May_2013|Scrutiny Committee May 2013]] seeking clarity about this. The Council said that was not the plan. But when the plans were [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway/Jan-Sep_2014#Network_Rail_plans_reveal_total_demolition_18th_January_2014|unveiled at a public meeting in January 2014 it turned out that was the plan.]] The community rejection of the plan at that public meeting in Rye Lane Chapel led the Council to agreeing to hire new consultants to redesign the plan for the whole Gateway site involving the community, [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway/Jan-Sep_2014#Council-community_partnership_for_station_scheme_25th_February_2014|through a ‘Co-design’ process.]] Because of this long community background which was led by Peckham Vision, this website has a detailed record of the process until September 2014, when the co-design process started. Thereafter, it is less detailed, and needs to be read in conjunction with the co-design web links.
