A new name for Norwood Road

Cllr Fred Cowell on Norwood Rd

Cllr Fred Cowell on Norwood Rd

Norwood Road starts in Herne Hill and ends at Robson Road. Should we rename our main shopping street , the part from Tulse Hill to Knights Hill? Suggestions so far include Norwood Broadway, West Norwood Road, Norwood Boulevard, Norwood Tulse Road.

Come and discuss how you see West Norwood in 10 years time. You may not want a road name change but what sort of shops & work spaces do you want to see? Where should we build more badly needed new homes?

This month 3 consultation events are happening. For businesses Friday 19th 8.30am at Parkhall or Wednesday 25th 8.30am at The Great North Wood. For residents at the Leisure Centre there is a workshop on Tuesday 24th 6.30pm and a drop in on Tuesday 31st 4pm to 8pm Wednesday 25th .

Book as places are limited: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/lambeth-council-amp-regeneris-consulting-10713114508

Or speak to Cllr Fred Cowell 07920 559 491 FCowell@lambeth.gov.uk @fredacowell

There are traces of Norwood’s past  everywhere and a great way to find out more is to join a free history walk led by local experts. Every first Sunday of the month there is a guided tour of history of West Norwood Cemetery at 2.30pm http://www.fownc.org/. We can see Henry Tate’s gardens in May or September. There are tours of West Norwood & Upper Norwood in June, July & August. And if you are curious about the hidden river Effra put 11th and 25th September in your diary.
