A company with a micropub in Peckham and brewing facilities in Deptford has entered administration.
Their taproom is located near Peckham Rye station just off Peckham High Street.
In recent months some have heavily campaigned against new homes being built in Peckham not too far from the taproom, with The Guardian getting on board with opponents whilst at the same time failing to mention potential social housing (around 300 in total) as part of development and benefits to local business.
That’s despite the proposed development site comprising a large car park and predominantly a low density supermarket near two railway stations and many bus routes. The Morrisons would be replaced on site.
It’s been stated Brick Brewery may gain a reprieve, and if they do then new housing and residents in the near vicinity could help the company enjoy a long term future in Peckham and protect employment in their larger brewery.
But you probably won’t see that in your NIMBY supporting local and national press forever airing the grievances of some while ignoring widespread benefit to others that new housing – including hundreds of social homes – can provide.
