The company looking to create new shops and homes in a redevelopment of the Aylesham Shopping Centre in Peckham is holding a public consultation on the initial designs for the centre, Emma Snaith writes…

Tiger Developments Ltd has set up a series of events  from July 12 to give  people a chance to view and comment on the designs for the redevelopment.

Community workshops were also held last November.

Tiger Developments said  in a statement that it seeks ‘to deliver a better Morrisons, which will continue trading throughout the redevelopment, and create a new pedestrian-friendly area featuring shops and public spaces.’

It added that the redevelopment ‘will also include new affordable and private homes as well as space for small businesses.’

Since the company announced its intentions last year, some local people have expressed concerns that redevelopment  might not meet the council’s 35 per cent affordable housing target and that a building “up to 20 storeys tall” could ruin the view from Peckham rooftops.

Tiger Developments is holding two community workshops on Wednesday, July 12 and Tuesday, July 18.

Both workshops will be hosted at Rye Lane Baptist Chapel, from 5.30-9.00 pm. Tickets for the community workshops are limited and can be reserved online at www.ayleshamcentre.eventbrite.co.uk or by calling 0800 307 7562.

Two public exhibitions displaying the initial designs will be held at Unit 15B in the Aylesham Centre. The exhibitions will take place on Saturday, July 15 from 10am-2pm and Monday, July 17 from 4pm-8pm.

We shouldnt build houses to solve the housing crisis in London if it means loosing a great view from a few rooftops. Save the view, stuff the people.
