Streetworks is the local community led project to improve the pavements and make West Norwood’s main shopping street more attractive to local people & visitors. https://www.streetworks.london/
Norwood Action Group has organised a public meeting at 7pm on Monday 10th September at Chatsworth Baptist Church in Chatsworth Way SE27 9HN to look at the results of the Streetworks project and the future of our shopping street. All welcome to come and have a say.
Town centres have always been retailing centres but the shift to online shopping means town centres are shifting towards more services to survive. With many independents providing a wide range of services already West Norwood is in better position than many places to take action to ensure the town centre remains the heart of the local community.
If you can find it online – Robert Peston’s 3 part History of Shopping is worth watching.
SGN engineers are still trying to find the source of the gas leak near Tulse Hill station SE27 today when 17 homes were evacuated.
In the meantime Norwood Road from Station Rise to Elmcourt Road is completely close to traffic and pedestrians. Traffic is diverted via the South Circular and Lancaster Avenue.
#432 bus is diverted via Streatham to Crystal Palace. #2 buses stop at the Tulse Hill one way system.

Developers have submitted a formal planning application for 51 new homes and a new office block off Lansdowne Hill to replace the derelict ex-laundry building. The plans show the housing block as 6-7 storeys high and the office block as 4 storeys. There are 5 parking spaces. And two new stepped footpaths into York Hill estate. The new scheme includes 20% affordable housing: five 3-bedroom homes at social rent and four 1or2-bedroom homes at intermediate rent.

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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
