Greener & calmer traffic zone

Work is due to start in the autumn to create a new green 20 mph calming zone west of  Knight’s Hill and Norwood Road. This scheme is a unique approach to traffic calming and will include 85 new street trees. Some of the trees will be planted in tree pits in the road and others in the pavement.

The scheme has been developed following a campaign by local residents to expand the existing 20mph zone around Cheviot Road and tackle rat running and speeding to and from Leigham Court Road. A series of consultation activities followed an initial resident’s workshop in 2010. The necessary statutory notices have already gone out and fuller details of the scheme will be available soon with more opportunities to comment.

A group of residents are talking to Lambeth council’s tree experts about the types of street trees that would best suit the area. To get involved in these discussions please email the group at:   trees4westnorwood@yahoo.co.uk

Benches on the hills of West Norwood

new benches

New Benches

West Norwood shopping centre is at the bottom of a series of steep hills – York Hill, Lansdowne Hill, Knights Hill & Auckland Hill. So it’s great going downhill to go shopping but harder bringing your shopping back home up hill!

New benches have been strategically placed to create a rest stop for residents walking up, or down our hills.

Some residents do have concerns that the new benches will encourage anti-social behaviour.

Do the advantages of a bench, particularly for less mobile residents, outweigh the potential disadvantages? Do let Cllr Pickard know what you think [jpickard@lambeth.gov.uk ]
