The Peckham Town Centre Forum emerged in December 2009, from discussions in the Rye Lane & Station Action Group – [[Peckham_Town_Centre_Forum#Peckham_Town_Centre_Forum_Origins|see below.]] It was initiated and facilitated by Peckham Vision as an informal gathering of people in different roles, who are keen to improve Peckham Town Centre and have energy and enthusiasm, who get together to share ideas and take actions. Local residents had been coming together with architects, urban designers, business people, artists, gallery owners, creative entrepreneurs and others, with ward councillors, and Council officers from town planning and other departments with roles relating to the town centre. This had enabled a continuing dialogue leading to more informed actions. The actions developed beyond fixed meetings into collaborative working across a network of local interested people. Public meetings are generally were in the CLF Art Cafe in the [[Bussey building]] [see picture] in the heart of the [[Copeland_Cultural_Quarter|Copeland Cultural Quarter]] where Peckham Vision was born, or in the Old Waiting Room, or in All Saints Church Hall Blenheim Grove. <br>
In 2012 that cooperative working with the Council began to wither as they withdrew into planning the station site into a closed group, and the PNAAP proceeded to a Public Hearing in July 2013. In the meantime, Peckham Vision continued to develop the community networking and information action through community fairs, public meetings, workshops and through the email list, website, Facebook and twitter.
