Developers have plans to demolish 90-96 Norwood High Street SE27 9NW and build a 4 & 5 storey block on the corner with Rothschild Street. The new build will have 10 one-bed flats, 1 two-bed flat and 4 three-bed flats. The ground floor will remain in commercial use – in keeping with the council’s plans for a Creative Business Cluster along Norwood High Street.
The scheme includes a playground and a new mature tree – shown to be 4 storeys high in the drawings. There is no off-site parking but 20 secure cycle parking spaces. Other sustainable features include green living roofs, bee hotel bricks and nesting boxes for swifts.
The flats are compact and there is no reference to affordable or social housing on or off-site.
