Future of Children’s Centres in West Norwood

Due to central government cuts the council is forced to make changes to our
childrens centres for families with under-5s . Lambeth wants to keep as many
centres open as possible and has proposals to run 18 centres from September
2019 onwards.

In the West Norwood area the council plans to keep Bentons Lane SE27 9UD
(Kingswood) & Hitherfield SW16 2JW open full time and Crown Lane SW16 3HX &
Rosendale SE21 8LR open half days. Cherry Tree at Barston Rd SE27 9HE will
continue its childcare service under Rosendale school.

To have a say over these proposals see the details are in this booklet:
https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/sites/default/files/co-childrens-centre-consultat
ion_0.pdf

And come along to one of the ten parent/carer consultation events, with a
free crèche, across the borough.

The nearest local events are:
Tuesday 8th January  1.30pm to 3pm at Brockwell One O’clock Club near
Arlingford Rd SW2 2TA
and
Monday 14th January 11am to 1pm at Rosendale Children’s Centre,  Rosendale
Road SE21 8LR

There is also an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/K28FXN3

Spending developers contributions in West Norwood

postcardWhen the council gives planning permission for new buildings and developments –  developers provide the council with payments to fund local improvements. This money is called CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy).

To suggest the sort of priorities & projects this money should be spent on please complete this short online survey. The  deadline is 23rd December. Ideas for Norwood’s residential areas are particularly welcome.

The results from  other recent consultations –  West Norwood and Tulse Hill Masterplan refresh, Commonplace and  StreetWorks  will be taken into account. The conclusions will be published as  Norwood’s  Cooperative Local Investment Plan (or CLIP for short) in early 2017 and  inform investment decisions in the local area for the next three years.

For more information go to the story on the Lambeth council website. You can also download this leaflet: norwood-leaflet

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. )

The council is now looking at improving the roads and pavements in West Norwood town centre between Tulse Hill station and West Norwood station. An early version of the plans will be on show at The Feast on Sunday 3rd July in St Lukes Gardens 10am to 4pm. Over the next few months there will be more chances for everyone to contribute to the improvement plans.

Norwood Road is eligible for funding by the London Mayor’s £50 million high street regeneration fund to strengthen the vibrancy and growth of London’s high streets and local areas.

Improving the environment of Norwood Road is an important part of the proposals in the West Norwood Masterplan and will help attract private sector investment into the area. Current public sector projects include the new primary school in Wolfington Road and the new leisure & health centre in Devane Way. The masterplan can be seen via Lambeth’s Future Norwood web. pages.
