Peckham Vision has brought to attention the cluster of Art Deco buildings in central Rye Lane, and is creating material for this page to make this information available to the public. The display panel below is the first public collection of the pictures of the buildings. Further details of each of them and their preservation and restoration is being prepared.
===The Art Deco cluster/quarter===
There is a [[Media:A1_PV_Panel_Art_Deco_Quarter_-_draft_flat_72ppi.pdf|cluster of 7 Art Deco buildings in central Rye Lane.]]
The Council plan to demolish the Arcade building and create a new square. The Council are also considering demolition of the Art Deco buildings on the corner of Rye Lane and Blenheim Grove, and Rye Lane and Holly Grove. This has revealed mixed views about whether to demolish the arcade or restructure it , but very strong support to retain and restore all the other Art Deco buildings. The display panel below is the first public collection of the pictures of the buildings. Further details of each of them and their preservation and restoration is being prepared.

====Khan's Bargain stores/former Holdron's====
The original magnificent ceiling of the former Holdron’s building, now occupied by '''Khan’s Bargain store''', is being restored by Benedict O’Looney Architects with the cooperation of Akbar Khan proprietor of the store, and Copeland Park the owners of the building, who were all brought together by Peckham Vision. Funds need to be raised to continue and complete this work.

These are the white buildings around the station, numbered 2, 3, 4, 5 on the map below. They are owned by Network Rail who with the Council produced [[Gateway_plans|plans in January 2014 for their demolition]] along with all the other non rail buildings on railway land between Blenheim Grove and Holly Grove. These plans were rejected locally and a [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway/Jan-Sep_2014#CODESIGN_PECKHAM_RYE_STATION_SQUARE_1st_July_2014|further consultation called ‘CoDesign’ started in September 2014,]] and that [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway#5th_November:_deadline_for_comments| first phase ended in November 2014.]] During this it emerged Network Rail are discussing with the leaseholders of the Iceland building and the Hannah Barry Gallery building demolition and replacement by taller buildings of up to 7 stories for housing and retail, and the Council are exploring demolition of the building on the corner of Rye Lane and Blenheim Grove and replacement of a four storey block. Planning permision was finally granted in 2016. [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway#1st_March_2016_Planning_permission|Detail and images can be seen here.]]
