Peckham Rye redevelopment plans published

 The £25m redevelopment proposals for Peckham Rye are now out to consultation, Network Rail has announced.

Working with Southwark Council, the Greater London Authority and architects Weston Williamson and Partners, Network Rail aims to make the area around the station cleaner, safer and more useful.

The proposals include a new public square in front of the station building; more information on the project can be found here.

Network Rail’s director of planning and land services, Tom Higginson, said: “With improved services to Peckham Rye station now running, we’ve got the perfect opportunity to invest in the station area with Southwark Council. We, and our partners, will be listening to the people of Peckham in drawing up a plan to benefit the area and help boost existing and new business.”

Cllr Fiona Colley, Southwark Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Corporate Strategy, said: "I'm sure, like me, many people living or working in and around Peckham will be really excited to see the architects' initial proposals for the transformation of Peckham Rye station and the surrounding area.

“This long-awaited redevelopment has the potential to dramatically improve people's experience of visiting or doing business in Peckham town centre, and I hope lots of local people will take advantage of the opportunity to influence these exciting plans."

Weston Williamson’s architect said: “We very much look forward to presenting and discussing the design with the community at the forthcoming consultation events and receiving feedback on the proposals for this significant project at the very heart of Peckham.”
