==Suggestions & Guidance==
Planning applications have short deadlines of weeks, and there are many documents to read to work out what are the key issues. There are technical planning aspects to follow and it needs an understanding of the planning application process. To help in all this, this page gives suggestions and information about how to think about a planning proposal in Peckham town centre, and how to respond to the planning application. '''It also contains in Section 2 below information Information about specific applications[[Planning_Applications_Individual|can be found here. These are in date order with the most recent first. (This is a work in progress.)]]

* Transport statement
