This is an industrial site with Blackpool Road running across it from east to west (site 4 in the map below). This site is the second half (the other half being Copeland Park, including the Bussey Building) of what 10 years ago was proposed for redevelopment as the tram depot. The site is still occupied as it was then in the north part by the bus garage, Council streetworks base, a church in a large Victorian building, and a small block of flats; and in the south half by Buildbase a large builders’ merchants. The Council is proposing it should be redeveloped for mixed use as housing and small business spaces.

April 2017 comments on the NSP
Over the last several weeks our Peckham Vision community team has facilitated a number of discussions through meetings, site walks and email exchanges about the proposals, and helped many people to engage with the planning policy documents and processes. We have brought together in four pdfs, one for each of the 4 sites, the basic facts about each site, and some of the comments that have been made in this process together with the Council's own NSP text. These 4 pdfs can be used as a checklist to consider what comments to make on any of the sites.
