[[Site 71P|Site 63P/71P]], was identified by Southwark Council as the location for a [[Tram depot proposals|possible 'split-site' tram depot]]. Now (2008-9) that decision [[Visions_for_Peckham#Latest News|has been reversedby Transport for London (TfL),]] and the blight has been lifted. Half of that site, the part between Rye Lane and Copeland Road, was wrongly said to be derelict leading to the decision in 2004 to locate the tram depot there. The Peckham Vision campaign successfully got across the message that the site was already a showing its potential to be a thriving mixed area of artists' studios, art galleries, a variety of small businesses, retail and creative industry, housing and other community uses, and has the emerging feel of a Cultural Quarter. A major part of the land is owned and operated by Copeland Industrial Park (CIP), and so the area and its immediate surrounds is becoming known as the Copeland Cultural Quarter (CCQ). See article [[Media:SE15_article.pdf|Emerging Copeland Cultural Quarter]].
See [[:Image:A Lovely Site for a Depot - Satellite with CCQ.jpg|here]] for a satellite view of the Copeland Cultural Quarter, showing its location, and [[:Image:Streetplan - CCQ and Station.png|here]] for a street plan showing its links with the [[Peckham Rye Station|Peckham Rye station]] area, which is also emerging as a cultural quarter. [[Transforming_Central_Rye_Lane|See here for the way this has all developed up to mid 2014]] demonstrating the great potential this area, around the station, really had for the creative and cultural industries.
