The Station Gateway site is a complex one with commercial buildings nestled amongst railway buildings, viaducts and arches. The site is divided into properties with addresses on Rye Lane, Holly Grove, Blenheim Grove, Station Way, Dovedale Court, and Blenheim Court. So we created a [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway/2011-2013#Revised_map_of_properties_in_the_station_plans_June_2013|site map]] showing exactly where these places are and how they related to the plans for total clearance that we were beginning to hear about in April/May 2013. This aid to discussion proved invaluable as during 2013 we took two deputations to the Cabinet, attended a Scrutiny Committee, and took part in many community fairs, events and meetings, and discussion about the issues raised by the plans. Then Network Rail published their proposals to clear the site and redevelop it completely. To be able to have clear discussions, local people needed to have a model of the existing buildings and their layout on the site and also the areas around the site. We had suggested to the Council during the consultations last winter that a model would be very useful for this purpose. But the Council turned down the idea as too expensive. We felt that a model needed to cover the parts of the town centre surrounding the Network Rail site, wich is much of the streets and buildings shown on the [[Peckham_Rye_Station_Gateway/2011-2013#Revised_map_of_properties_in_the_station_plans_June_2013|site map]] that we created. The pictures below show the street views in this area.

===Launch of the model 23rd July 2014===The model was launched to acclaim amidst a joyous celebration of wonderful community collaboration. Locals queued before 3pm for the doors to open, and then we were kept very busy throughout and the meeting at 7pm was packed. Just recovering now from all the exertions as a 100% volunteer effort to get it ready and manage the day itself. There seemed a great buzz and we managed to attract people in from the street through our TODAY posters at the entrance and pictures along the passage into the Bussey building. There are still some buildings to be completed, and the model group sessions will resume in September. More reports later. In the meantime, look at the [https://twitter.com/PeckhamVision tweets,] [https://www.facebook.com/PeckhamRyeStation Facebook posts] and [http://peckhamresidents.wordpress.com/ blog] in the days after 23 July 2014.
