The meeting was attended by 20 people, and was another lively discussion. This time the focus was on numerous planning applications which needed comment and objections. Together they raised significant issues and had wider and cumulative effects on the town centre. These included the lack of social housing, damaging effects on the historic buildings and the Conservation Area, and the size and mass of some were out of scale with the town centre. Because of these wider issues, and that the plans were controversial, it was agreed to ask the ward councillors to call-in several so they could be decided by the Planning Committee, rather than by officers under delegated authority. People should be encouraged to submit their objections. It was also agreed to ask for a deputation to the Community Council on 29th June, and to ask to make representations to the Planning Committee on 5th July about the wider issues and cumulative effects of so many planning applications being considered in isolation as separate developments. Other business included planning policy developments and future consultations, the development of PPN and the need for volunteers to help on the Peckham Vision stall at the Brimmington Park Festival on 2nd July and the Peckham Rye Fete on 3rd September. '''The next date will be in September''', to be fixed.
