Time Out

“Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”. Margaret Mead

  • Holdrons Arcade and the Bussey Building were closed during the Covid-19 Public Health emergency. Peckham Vision's Bussey studio was open every few weeks on a publicised date before the pandemic, and then suspended during the Covid pandemic. The Arcade has been refurbished and the Peckham Vision shop has been in action again since 17th September 2021. There is a continuing display of information about our community work in the town centre and how planning and regeneration are linked with excessive demolition and redevelopment, damaging neighbourhoods and contributing to the climate emergency. During the pandemic we continued our work by digital means. This page is where we are collecting references and links with useful info about the health emergency. Any queries, please email -

Key pages

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.
  • Role of Community Action [page being constructed]

Planning and Development:

Working together:

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.
