==Latest January-June 2016==
The original staircase is now being restored and extended so that it can reach the Old Waiting Room. This work
, with the strong and welcome support of the '''[http://railwayheritagetrust.co.uk/ Railway Heritage Trust,]''' as well as Network Rail and some small neighbourhood grants from Southwark Council. is expected to be completed by autumn 2016. It coincides with the 150th anniversary of the opening of Peckham Rye station and the railways coming to Peckham. That heralded a dramatic change in the built environment and demographics of Peckham. The areas needed before for food growing to feed central London were given up for housing, much of which remains today. Peckham Vision is asking Network Rail for permission to use the Old Waiting Room to hold a series of informative exhibitions and events to celebrate the railways during this 150th anniversary when the stairs are completed. The events would cover railway history and operations, and events which link to that history in some way. Anyone with ideas or suggestions about such events, or who wishes to join our group to enable this programme to happen please email email@example.com.

===Community Business proposal to Network Rail June 2014===
Peckham Vision has developed a viable business case for an interim lease to use the Old Waiting Room as a multi purpose venue for hire once the staircase is restored and extended and before the plans for the final restoration of the Room are developed. We have asked Network Rail for discussions about our proposal and request for an interim lease.
