Save the Civic Centre


The former North Peckham Civic Center is by far the finest 20th Century building on the Old Kent Road.

Plan are afoot for its demolition. We think this would be a blunder of epic proportions. 

Originally built in 1966, the former Civic Centre now accommodates a local church. 

We believe the former Civic Centre should be included in a conservation area or listed with support from Southwark Council. 

In the meantime, we are seeking photos, drawings and memories of the North Peckham Civic Centre. We have been searching local history archives, but we know there is more material out there. Help us build a case to save this beautiful building, send us an e-mail at

It is also interesting to note that in the May 2016, the former Civic Center appeared in the councils first draft AAP as a building of 'Architectural or Historic Interest'. This has since been removed in the latest plans. See the Map below...
