Policy for planning application decisions

The Lambeth Local Plan  sets out the vision, strategic objectives and policies for development of  the built environment development in Lambeth. The Plan covers matters from telephone boxes to housing, work places, town centres, infrastructure (such as health facilities and schools), transport, environment and historic buildings. Together with the London Mayor’s it forms the statutory basis for deciding on planning applications.

The council is now starting  a 2 year process to update the 2015 plan. The first stage – ending on 4th December 2017 – is consulting on the issues to be reviewed.

To have your say see the online survey at: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/lambeth-local-plan-review-2017

Ready to go electric?

Casewick Road

Electric vehicles are here already and are expected to become wide spread over the next few years. They will make a huge difference to air quality in our city neighbourhoods.

Ubitricity, a start-up based in Germany, is carrying out a small pilot to enable Lambeth residents to charge their vehicle in their own street. Charging points have been installed in a number of lamp posts across the borough – including the top end of Casewick Road.

If you are planning to use an electric vehicle soon – why not take part in the pilot? Email Ubitricity direct at customersupport@ubitricity.com

New stop for 68 bus

WP_20160618_11_42_00_ProAt long last the 68 bus now stops at bus stop Y  by St Julians Farm Road.

The contract for the 68 bus was won by Go-Ahead London in 2006. As the West Norwood bus garage is run by a different company, Arriva, the  68 route did not extend to the garage but used to “turn” and stand in Hannen Road, the small road beside the train station.

Local residents successfully campaigned with councillors to remove the 68 bus from Hannen Road but it has taken a few more years to get Transport for London to extend the 68 route so it can stop at St Julians Farm Road.

For help in changing other local public transport routes contact Florence Eshalomi, our area representative on the London Assembly (   Florence.Eshalomi@london.gov.uk )

Changes to Norwood Road

Harpenden Road junction

Harpenden Road junction

After a series of workshops the community-led Streetworks project has drawn up detailed design plans to change and improve Norwood Road.

The plans include improving Station Rise in front of Tulse Hill station, widening the east pavement between Chestnut Road and Chatsworth Way, options on parking,  the Norwood Road entrance to Harpenden Rd becoming one way to allow for a new zebra crossing over Norwood Road, a diagonal crossing at York Hill/Lancaster Avenue and  levelling the side roads with the pavement at their junction with Norwood Road.

You can comment on the designs until Tues 19th July at:  http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/norwood-road

But why not visit the exhibitions on Saturday 25th June 2.30-5pm at the West Norwood Health & Leisure Centre in Devane Way SE27 0DF  or Wednesday 6th July 6.30-9pm at the Old Library 14 Knights Hill SE27 0HY ?

There is also a chance to comment on the designs at the West Norwood Feast market on July 3rd and the Country Show on 16th & 17th July.

The improvements will be funded by Transport for London and works should start in  Autumn 2016.  See our earlier posts:  9/2/16 19/1/16 and 3/6/15

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. The  drop in on Tuesday 31st 4pm to 8pm is cancelled and will be re-arranged  .

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

In the meantime, if you can’t make these events you can comment by website: https://westnorwoodandtulsehill.commonplace.is/
