Sustrans believes that high streets should be shared equally by all the people that use them whether they’re in a car, on two wheels or on foot. Too often high streets are dominated by heavy motorised traffic and pedestrians and cyclists are at best pushed to the margins or at worst intimidated and scared. This means high streets function only as places to shop and not as community spaces like they used to do.

This project hopes to change all that. The people of Peckham are invited to collaborate and innovate to make unused spaces along Rye Lane live again. We have two years to create temporary and semi-permanent interventions in these spaces. It’s up to you to decide together what will happen, it could be one off events such as a film screening, or something that needs time to grow like a garden. Sustrans will provide you with the support and the resources, all you need to bring is an open mind and your ideas.
