Introduction

Peckham Vision’s work over the last 15 years has shown us how the current planning and development process in London is driving unnecessary demolition and redevelopment in the name of ‘regeneration’. Key topics for us in Peckham Vision are:

  • recycling and reusing buildings rather than demolishing them as a key response to reducing carbon emissions, and damaging climate change, and also
  • the variety of ways in which neighbourhoods can begin to help local people live more sustainably.

We have shown through our work in Central Rye Lane that there is a different way to vibrant and organic locally rooted self regeneration by recycling and reusing existing buildings. This means that the carbon emissions created in the demolition and the construction of replacement buildings is contributing unnecessarily to climate change.

Since then we have begun a stream of actions to bring this to public attention and to work with others on the topic. These actions are summarised below, in date order, latest first.

Saturday 14th September Open Studio Peckham Festival

  • During the Peckham Festival we took part in the Bussey Building Open Studios. We launched here the new display poster we have created explaining the links between carbon emissions and climate change and unnecessary demolition and redevelopment. SHOW IMAGE alongside and at the foot of page in readable large form.
