Work has started on designing St Luke’s car park improvements . The works have to be done very carefully – removing the existing tarmac and making sure no graves are disturbed. Then a proper road base will be laid down as a foundation for the surface tarmac. Dropped kerbs on the churchyard driveways, off Knights Hill, are due to be installed at the same time.
This is one of the last remaining improvements under funded by The Outer London Fund. Apparently Network Rail have relented and are considering installing one coloured panel under the bridge near Tulse Hill station. See our post on May 9th 2014 for details.
£30k has been won by West Norwood businesses & the council from the London Mayor to support work on a local Business Improvement District ( BID) . BIDs are organisations owned by businesses to improve business in the area.

Proposed view from Knights Hill
This is the fourth attempt by developers to get planning permission to develop the tennis club site. Previous plans have been strongly opposed by local residents and these new plans are scaled down from the developer’s first proposal to build 60 flats on the site.
