Cllr Pickard at West Norwood Firestation
West Norwood Fire Station will be moving in autumn 2014 to a new building under construction at 210 Knights Hill SE27 0JD. The current building at 445 Norwood Road SE27 9DQ is now up for sale by agents Dron & Wright. The site is 1,000 sq meters over 0.15 hectares and has already attracted interest from hoteliers & retailers. The Fire Station will continue to operate from Norwood Road until the move to Knights Hill.
Derelict site at 17 Knights Hill
Antic are looking for an alternative and larger building to house one of their boutique style pubs in West Norwood. The site next to Emmaus at 17 Knights Hill turned out not to be suitable and has been sold on.
Suggestions for new sites are welcome – see http://www.knowlesofnorwood.com/
The Horns Tavern, the oldest pub in West Norwood, is taking part in the Macmillan coffee morning on Friday 28th September from 9am.
Alison has a warm welcomes for everyone dropping by, on your own or with friends, to enjoy a tea or coffee & cakes at The Horns Tavern, 40 Knights Hill SE27 0JD opposite West Norwood station This is a great opportunity to help fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Support. Last year 51,000 people across the UK raised over £10million for Macmillan on the world’s biggest coffee morning.
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.
Tree in a road tree pit
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: email@example.com
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 [firstname.lastname@example.org ]

Our local police team, in partnership with Lambeth council, evicted squatters that were illegally occupying two addresses in Knights Hill on 27th February. Up to 50 people were residing at 210 Knight’s Hill previously used by the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust. Squatters were also evicted from a privately owned home.
Knight’s Hill SNT had received complainants of disturbances and anti-social behaviour from both the addresses where the squatters had held late night parties.
Officers exercised their powers under section 12a of the Criminal Law Act 1977 to remove them. The council sought the high court order and local police officers accompanied the bailiffs to enter the addresses during an early morning raid. No arrests were made.
Inspector Bruce Whitter said: “After listening to the concerns of the local community and by working in partnership with the council we have managed to evict those members peacefully and return the property to the rightful owners.”
If you are experiencing anti-social behaviour in your area please contact your local Safer Neighbourhood Police Team. They are ready to listen and assist. http://content.met.police.uk/Team/Lambeth/KnightsHill
