Retain the market stall pitch at Moncrieff Place in Peckham

Retain the market stall pitch at Moncrieff Place in Peckham

Please do not de-designate the market stall pitch #001 at Moncrieff Place, Peckham. Peckham Town Centre should retain the existing designated street pitches to allow continued provision of spaces where traders can supply products at affordable prices for Peckham residents and shoppers.

Why is this important?

Southwark Council is intending to de-designate one of the two existing pitches at the Rye Lane end of Moncrieff Place, (in front of the PeckhamPlex cinema). This would mean the loss of: an historic fully licensed street pitch, a long standing commercial outlet providing affordable goods for local shoppers for over 25 years, part of the infrastructure supporting small independent traders in the town centre, and the livelihood of a local trader and his family.

Moncrieff Place stall holders are established licensed traders and have the full support of the Southwark Association of Street Traders (SAST) and the Rye Lane Traders Association (RLTA). They are fully supportive of improvements to Peckham town centre, but not when it means losing vital and valued retail space and the loss of a long standing Peckham business.
