One of the roles of the Peckham Society is to promote high standards of planning and architecture in Peckham and Nunhead, and preserve, protect and improve features of historic or public interest. This is neatly summarised in the Society slogan:
Honouring the past Protecting the future
The Peckham Society supports the activities of Peckham Vision. Peckham Vision is a resident-led local community consortium of individuals who live, work or run a business in Peckham. Its vision is to support Peckham town centre as a thriving and sustainable social and commercial centre, and to contribute to Peckham being a good place for all in which to live, work and visit. The objects of the Group are to:
• Promote and encourage citizen action to help Peckham town centre to become an integrated and resilient place and links past, present and future for the benefit of all who live and work there.
• Create and nurture ways of connecting people in Peckham who share enthusiasm and desire to help develop and realise the potential of Peckham, and to make the lessons available beyond Peckham.
