Question

On 15th November last year you supported a suggestion that TfL should look at the possibility of a Station Square project to improve this important entry point into Peckham. I recently showed an outline drawing for a station square scheme to Peckham Community Council and there was great enthusiasm for the idea from Councillors and the public alike. Will you adopt this project as one of your 100 public square proposals and work with me, the local Council, the Cross River partnership and Network Rail to bring it to fruition?

My 100 Public Spaces Programme is designed to demonstrate the importance of well designed public space in achieving an urban renaissance. Many of the projects are focused on improving transport interchanges and exploring the potential of an improved public realm to encourage more sustainable forms of transport. There are 34 spaces announced to date, many of them in the most deprived areas of London. My officers in Design for London are working with Transport for London, the LDA and local boroughs to identify new projects of strategic significance to add to the programme. I would encourage you to provide details of the Peckham proposals to Design for London so the potential for including these in the programme can be explored.
