Community engagement: Peckham Vision
- facilitates and encourages informed discussion about the management and future of Peckham Town Centre,
- pioneers ways of connecting local people who want to contribute, including Peckham Town Centre Forum.
Planning and Development:
- Central Rye Lane
- Other Planning
Peckham rail services:
- Peckham Rye station is served by three different rail companies. Each rail company has maps of just their own services into and out of London. This means:
- the Tube map shows just TfL services, and none of the other several direct connections with the Tube.
- Network Rail's maps don’t give a clear picture about Peckham’s Tube connections.
- So we produced a map (posted to the right here) showing Peckham's direct connections to the Tube, and to central London. It shows how they link with TfL's underground (Tube) and overground services.
