London, UK. 14th August, 2021. Southwark residents and campaigners protest alongside Peckham Green against plans by Southwark Council to develop it as public housing. Peckham Green, also known as Jocelyn Street Park, is a 1.4-acre public park off Peckham High Street, one of the most polluted roads in London, in a borough which is ranked fifth-worst in London and eighth-worst in the UK for easy access to green space. Local campaigners have been protesting that they were not consulted in relation to Southwark Council's plans. Southwark Council declared a climate emergency in 2019.
