Appears that some cyclist got done by a left turning lorry at the Peckham rd/ Lidl junction at Burger king. No idea of state of rider but bike trashed. Lots of trucks in and out of the old highshore school site this week as clearing begins in earnest- maybe be careful in that area if you are cycling, at very least for the shit that will litter that section of road with the trucks.

fatal stabbing at peckham rye station
It appears you can put lipstick on a pig - but it's still a pig though.
26 year old bloke KIlled- rumours & stories abound due to the amount of people around, will not post them heres obvs
26-year-old father of four, Bilal Kargbo, who lived in Borough and was a former student at Walworth School, now Walworth Academy, on Old Kent Road, was fatally stabbed in the centre of Peckham on Friday 28 April 2017. He died at the scene after receiving two stab wounds to the arm and chest. and was pronounced dead at 3.51pm after collapsing in Blenheim Grove, less than 250 yards from the mobile phone shop where he worked on Rye Lane.

22 year-old Parish Ofoeme, of Burrage Road, Greenwich has been charged with his murder and possession of an offensive weapon.

Meant to put this in here.

The development at 38-44 Rye Lane (corner of highshore), where they want to put 28 flats in (now 27, what a concession!) and double the height of the building to six stories is back out for consultation. Grateful if other locals could object, it'll be a fucking eyesore and set an awful precedent in terms of height. There's no social housing/affordable in it either, as far as I can tell.

Any illustrations of the proposed development?

Annoyingly, the planbuild section of southwark's site is slow running/not working just after I clicked that. (Hopefully it's being swamped by objections), I'll dig the elevations out at lunch, think I have them on my laptop from looking at them last week...

Happily realised that it is, in fact, lunchtime. 8)

You'll notice there's no in-situ renderings of it, as would normally be the case. Wonder why that is?

Southwark planning site is well flaky - I usually have to try a couple of browsers to get through. The project sounds appalling though
