Plans for the Firestation
Now that our firestation has moved to brand new premises on Knights Hill developers have submitted plans for the site at 445 Norwood Road SE27 9DG
The proposal is to turn the firestation into 23 flats and a childrens nursery on the ground floor. The fire station built in 1914-15 is a Grade II listed and the building on Norwood Road together with many of its original features will be retained. A new 4-storey block at the back will have 11 flats. The plans have no off-street parking as the site is very close to bus routes and Tulse Hill station.
The mix of homes proposed is eleven 1-bedroom flats, ten 2-bedroom flats and two 3-bedroom flats. 8 of the new homes will be affordable.
