Lambeth council refused planning permission to build a new firestation for West Norwood on the site of the care home at 210 Knights Hill in January 2011. The main reason for refusal was that regular activities such as training for fire fighters would cause too much noise in a residential area.
The Fire Brigade then appealed to the independent Planning Inspector against the council decision. The Planning Inspector has arranged to listen to the arguments for and against the proposals at the YMCA , 40 Stockwell Road SW9 9ES on Wednesday 25th January . The hearing is in public but anyone wishing to speak to the Planning Inspector must be present at 10am to indicate they wish to do so.
