New hurdle for leisure & health centre

Japanese Knotweed

Japanese Knotweed

Work should be completed in the next 2 months on  the final details of the plans for the new leisure centre and  health centre for West Norwood on land  at the end of Devane Way off Knights Hill opposite West Norwood station. The new government has confirmed its support earlier this year for the funding but the Treasury has just added another step to check the project.

It is hoped that this new hurdle  will not add any significant delays so construction work can start early in 2012.  Work is already in underway to tackle the Japanese knotweed on the site as this weed can grown through concrete! (Building work will be starting on the nearby new primary school in October.)
