Peckham Rye station square

Co-Design Review

In 2016 Southwark Council commissioned Kaizen Partnership to conduct an independent review of the Co Design processes that were part of the Peckham Rye Station and Peckham Library Square developments.

The council recognised that some residents felt the process was not as effective as it could have been and wanted to investigate how this model could be developed and improved upon for future use.

In order to produce the review, Kaizen Partnership undertook a holistic approach to field work and engagement to gather opinions, analyse data and develop insight. They used a range of participatory research methods to make the process inclusive and engaging and ensure target audiences are involved.

The report concluded by commending the council’s bold approach to trialling the CoDesign process. It reiterated that whilst “messy” and often challenging, all those involved drew some value from it and many felt it had improved the scheme. The report noted that whilst there were varying opinions regarding how successful the process was, the experience of adopting CoDesign in these two developments should build knowledge and expertise that can make things easier and smoother for future Co-Designed schemes.
