Summary of Aylesham & Morrison's site development

Aylesham Plan.png

Introduction

The largest re-development site in Peckham town centre is the Aylesham Centre and Morrison’s car park. Southwark News has reported that up to 1000 new flats, with shops, evening entertainment and public space could replace the current shops and car park. The site is owned by a joint enterprise between Tiger Developments and hedge fund Blackrock. For such a large and important site it is essential that local people have a chance to contribute their ideas and their needs before the site owners develop their plans for discussion with the Council.

We are asking Tiger Developments and Blackrock, the owners and developers, to meet with us to discuss how local people can contribute before the plans are further developed. Tiger Developments and Blackrock have not yet shared any information on their proposal and have said it's "too early" to share.

What local people say

We held a recent informal event at Peckham Library Square together with UCL students who presented their design proposals for the site, all with the purpose to bring awareness to the demolition and potential changes and to received feedback from locals on what they want.

A current ongoing survey is showing that local people think they should be allowed to decide how the development goes, who it's for, how tall the buildings are and how it contributes to the local economy. The survey reflects well known opinion about the town centre:

Aylesham5.jpg
  • We wish to keep Peckham mixed and diverse
  • A call for more public toilets
  • Traffic flow considerations
  • Provision for the disabled
  • A call for green space
  • We need safe spaces and activities for the elderly, children and community use
  • We wish to support local business
  • Keep parking capacity that currently serves the site and help local businesses
  • A call for a market, garden growing, and fresh produce for Peckham people
  • we want a street scene and not a closed shopping mall
  • We want the gaps filled in basic quality high street provision

Oliver Goldsmith Estate (Peckham) resident, Peckham Vision volunteer and UCL academic John Bingham-Hall said:
this is the biggest development in the town centre and will fundamentally shape Peckham’s character. The developers are working on plans without having asked residents what they would like to see happen here - they’re missing out on so many good ideas. Many people are positive about change but want to see it happen in a way that benefits them. So rather than wait to be consulted we decided to start the conversation ourselves and get people talking. It’s fantastic that we could link up Peckham Vision’s energy with the skills of the Bartlett students, who were looking for a community project to work on. I just hope Tiger Developments can see that this will be better for everyone if we work together.”

Upcoming events and consultation dates

  • No developer's dates currently
  • Peckham Vision's stall has information about the development. The photos show the stall and display informing people of the Aylesham's redevelopment and asking them for views on what they wanted on that site, at Goose Green community fair on 8th May 2016.
