The cafe is closed for refurbishment and further development but is scheduled to reopen in late July

The footprint will be extended as the  plans include two changing rooms although new changing rooms have been built in the park 

The  timber cladding will be painted dark grey, making its structure more obtrusive when looking South across the Common.

Peckham Rye Common and Park are one of the few open green spaces in South London and every year plans are put forward to reduce this green space.  The Friends of Peckham Rye Park continue to be vigilant in resisting development on MOL/Common Land.
