23rd February 2010'''* Meeting minutes * Participants * Action checklist
The Council Planning officers were not able to participate in this meeting as it was deemed not a priority by their Department. Their absence was regretted by those present but it was well attended by 27 participants and as full of life and energy as the first. The discussions included the connections and links between the [http://www.neweconomics.org nef] project, to establish a [[Media:The_New_Peckham_Experiment_3_March.doc|New Peckham Experiment]], and the initiatives of interest to all at the Town Centre Forum. The meeting process from the first Forum was used again, and the Open Space enabled many connections and sharing of ideas, and the Action Checklist was updated. There was unanimous commitment to continuing with the Forum. [pictures]

* Agenda * Background email
Peckham Vision teamed up with the Peckham Society and the University of Canterbury Architecture School for a Town Centre Forum meeting. 45 second year architecture students joined in to hear about local aspirations for the town centre, the key urban design issues and the need for an integrated vision for the town centre in terms of archticture, innovation and energy potential. The students were about to start their project in urban design and architecture, using Peckham as their case study. [pictures] The meeting coincided with the news that the historic Holdron's building on the corner of Bournemouth Road and Rye Lane was soon to be demolished following an [http://www.peckhamvision.org/blog/?p=383 unsuccesful planning application]. The owners had been invited to join in the discussions at the meeting but they declined to attend. However, representatives of the owners of the adjacent Copeland Industrial Park, and of the Council buildings stretching along Bournemouth Road, did attend. These wil be useful contacts to build on for further discussions about the evolution of the Copeland Cultural Quarter. There were also some participants from the previous Forums and some new participants from some of the creative enterprises in the Copeland Industrial Park site.
