Has your neighbourhood been affected by planning applications or planning enforcements?

In the neighbourhood to the west of Rye Lane, in Peckham, over the years we have had numerous planning applications (and enforcement issues) which have resulted in many objections. After much effort, some of these have been changed. We have often thought that if developers knew before they started what local people think is acceptable, in the form of a 'neighbourhood profile', we might just possibly be able to avoid a lot of upset, effort and time.
We are meeting with the Planners to see if we can produce such a profile for our neighbourhood to the west of Rye Lane, in the forthcoming discussions about the Peckham Area Action Plan (PAAP). This is supported by The Lane ward Councillor Gordon Nardell who will also be at the meeting.
Such a process might be of interest to residents in other neighbourhoods, especially those affected by the PAAP. So if you would like to think about arranging such a meeting for your neighbourhood, you will be welcome to come and learn from this meeting about what might be involved in creating a 'neighbourhood profile', what might flow from that, and from our first look at the PAAP and how it affects us in our neighbourhood. Some of this might have relevance in your own neighbourhood.
The PAAP (Peckham Area Action Plan) is a very important Planning development which will establish the new future planning policy for Peckham. For information about the PAAP, please see:www.southwark.gov.uk/futurepeckham
Further information on some issues raised for the future of Peckham town centre, a core part of the PAAP, see www.peckhamvision.org
