  6. I see your plans for choumert car park. We already have street markets on rye lane. How about a flower market. East London have a successful flower market named “Columbia road flower market” whereby artists congregrate and sell garden sculpture, and there are plenty of cafe’s to have lunch that have sprung up over the years. This way we do not take business away from the current peckham traders (high street) whom like most businesses are finding trading in the austere times difficult. The second proposal for an outdoor artist performance area is a attractive one, but may not work here because you have flats occupied up above this vicinity, besides this is already occuring across the road in the Bussey Building/ Frank’s Cafe you could be in danger of duplication of ideas here? As for the mural drawing on the walls perhaps you could find out more about this site from Southwark Council then translate that history into a mural on the walls. Well done in your efforts to gets things done in Peckham it is much appreciated and pleasant to see the different projects occuring in pockets of Peckham Area.

  8. No more murals…please… If I want to see art I can choose what I like and go and see it, not have it inflicted on me.
    The Flower market sounds a fantastic idea, though eventually it will attract businesses that will affect the current Rye Lane traders inevitably. First I have heard of a ‘Rye Village’ are you sure you’re not an Estate Agent? 🙂
    (Actually I would like a vegetable market more along the lines of fresh airflown italian organic would be lovely).

  11. Hey what is happening with this artwork planned for the entrance carpark wall – of last year June. It is peeling of the wall, is this going to be permanent – is this the planned mural- surely not?

    • Hi Alison, apologies for the delayed reply! We are working with Peckham Platform and the Culture and Arts Department at Southwark Council to commission an artwork for the space. This is due for completion this summer. When there is more to share I will post a blog on this site. Thanks, Hannah.

  12. Perhaps the flower traders of East street Market could trade here once a month. The prices for their flowers and small potted trees are good value for money and most importantly the stall holders are courteous.They understand the local consumers of Peckham, Walworth and Camberwell should not be exploited by inflated pretentious prices – which is what usually happens when the newbies are lured into the area by the news of area regeneration improvements.
