Works are now under way to repave Norwood Road. The community-led Streetworks project came up with the design plans to change and improve Norwood Road following a series of workshops with local people.
The project is funded by Transport for London (TfL) who have set aside £7m to upgrade Norwood Road in West Norwood and the one-way system (gyratory) at Tulse Hill over a period of 5 years.
To find out more about what is happening and the next steps for changing the Tulse Hill one-way system do come along to one of the workshop style public meetings on Tuesday 28th Feb 6.30-8.30pm at City Heights Academy 3 Abbots Park SW2 3PW or on Tuesday 7th March
6.30-8.30pm at the Salvation Army 246 Norwood Rd SE27 9AW http://streetworksN2T.eventbrite.com
When 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.
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
