A new master plan for West Norwood

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. )
