Dave at Knowles on Wednesday
Yes after all those earlier missed deadlines Knowles of Norwood is opening tomorrow!
All the Knowles bar team are working flat out to get the pub open sometime between 6pm and 7pm on Thursday 26th November. Named after the original premises in Knights Hill ( now Otter Trading) Knowles will be the first new pub in West Norwood for very many years. Pop in to meet Dave, the bar manager, and see how the old Co-op at 294-296 Norwood Road SE27 9AF ( close to York Hill) has been transformed into a spacious pub by Antic. Bar food will be provided by Oh My Dog!

Lidl site from Crown Lane
In February 2015 Croydon council refused a planning application from Lidl to replace the former car showroom at the corner of Beulah Hill and Crown Lane. Croydon said Lidl’s plans were “ detrimental to the visual amenities of the streetscene, by reason of its unacceptable scale, appearance, siting, massing & overall design and insufficient landscaping & boundary treatment”
Lidl has now appealed against Croydon’s decision. You can comment on the appeal before Thursday 26th November by quoting ref 3087239 at the Planning appeal portal: http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/planning/appeals/online/search
Details of Lidl’s plans can be seen by quoting ref 14/04434/P at http://publicaccess.croydon.gov.uk/online-applications .
