Your feedback so far
November 2016 – 2017
Since 2016, Tiger Developments has been engaging with local people and businesses about its plans to reshape the Aylesham Shopping Centre in Peckham.
In November 2016 we held two community workshops where we discussed the potential to deliver a better Morrisons and create a new pedestrian-friendly area featuring shops and public spaces. The feedback we received at these earlier workshops helped us to shape our initial designs.
In July 2017 we shared our initial designs with the community at a series of workshops and public exhibitions. We asked what you wanted to see happen at ground level, which is how the majority of people will experience the future site on a day-to-day basis.
You can find a summary of feedback from these events here.
In February 2020, we presented our updated plans for this part of the town centre at further exhibitions held inside the Aylesham Shopping Centre, showing detailed designs for the first time. These plans included our thoughts on what could happen to the Transport for London bus stand on Peckham High Street. In total, 276 people attended the consultation events four days.
In addition, we also used a new online engagement platform, known as ‘Give My View’. The platform allows us to reach many more people and gather a greater amount of feedback on the plans. Between February and June of this year we saw 1,500+ people answer 7,000+ questions across two polls. These were the Your Priorities poll (1,005 voters) and The Redevelopment poll (768 voters). This equates to 1,339 individual voters.
- The delivery of affordable homes on the site is important but they must be affordable for local people.
- The scheme’s design needs to blend into the local area and take account of the existing built environment, including the historic context.
- People living and working in Peckham would benefit from a greater variety of shops, including High Street brands.
- Where there were concerns these were about height, because of the impact on key views, overshadowing and densification.
- That the site’s redevelopment should create opportunities for local businesses

July – August 2020 and ongoing
From July to late August we presented the updated plans for the Aylesham Centre over a six week period building on the feedback received in February.
Unfortunately, due to Government restrictions in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, our planned engagement had to change. With the aim of reaching a wide cross-section of people as possible we utilised a combination of this website, exhibition panels in the Aylesham Centre itself, a Community Newsletter, sent to over 12,600 people, in addition to letters to close neighbours of the Aylesham Centre, and the ‘Give My View’ digital platform, which attracted 2,929 individuals and over 2,116 written comments.
We are still inviting views on ‘The Proposals‘. You can provide your feedback via the ‘Give Your Views‘ page. There will be more opportunities to get involved and have your say are currently being developed so please do let us know if you would like to be involved.
