Last chance to have a say on the Master Plan for West Norwood before its turned into a report this October. The report will outline plans for the future of shopping, housing and business in West Norwood town centre. Hundreds of people have already input to the Master plan – many online via https://westnorwoodandtulsehill.commonplace.is/
On Thursday October 6th at St Lukes Church SE27 0HS you can see the latest plans and speak to the team who have been working on the Master Plan for months.
There will be other opportunities – at West Norwood Feast on 22nd October and an exhibition in St Lukes Church from 3rd to 17th October.
If you are not keen on meetings but have things to say about the future of West Norwood – then take a look at this new web site and its interactive map.
https://westnorwoodandtulsehill.commonplace.is/ It’s easy to mark the places you like and the places you would like to see improved. The map covers the area from Tulse Hill one-way system along Norwood Road & Knights Hill to Chapel Road.
Information input to the website will be part of a programme of public events, workshops and exhibitions during the spring and summer to discuss what people want for their community and neighbourhood. The council wants to end up with a new 2017 plan for future improvements and investment in West Norwood.
The last West Norwood master plan was in 2009 – we have seen many changes and improvements since then including new schools and the Health & Leisure Centre. ( Work should be starting very soon on the library –cinema in Nettlefold Hall and upgrading of the South London Theatre. )
