Have your say on Lambeth’s plans to collect residual waste wheelie bin once a fortnight from next year. Recycling bins, food waste and gardening bags will continue to be collected weekly.
To have your say please fill in the online survey here:
The consultation will close at midday on Friday June 30th. The Waste team will be in West Norwood on Sunday 4th June to speak to residents – drop by the Norwood Cemetery gates SE27 9JU between 10am and 4pm.
Paper copies of the survey form can be requested on 020 7926 9000
As households recycle more & more nearly half of London’s boroughs (including Southwark) already collect residual waste fortnightly from street properties. Councils see more households increase their recycling when they change to fortnightly collection.

The swimming pool at West Norwood Health & Leisure Centre (WNHLC) is due to reopen in July 2023. The men, women and families change areas are due to reopen by early April. Other services at WNHC such as the Knights Hill GP surgery and most leisure activities continue to operate as usual.
The WNHLC and surrounding park is funded via a private finance scheme with the NHS. The structure of the building, and so the repairs, are the responsibility of the private finance company . Last year unfortunately faults were identified in some parts of the building and the swimming pool and change areas had to be closed temporarily.
From 1st April 2023 Lambeth council is running its leisure services “in-house” as “Active Lambeth” and ending its contract with Better GLL. Existing Better memberships and direct debits will be transfered automatically but you should receive a notification email about the transfer. For more details see: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/active-lambeth
The council is consulting on controls over dogs. The draft scheme specifies where dogs must be on a lead , areas dogs are not allowed, out of control dogs, picking up dog mess and number of dogs per dog walker.
Check the draft scheme to see if your local park or play space is covered: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/have-your-say-dog-control-lambeth There will be a dedicated Parks Enforcement Team. Once the scheme is formalised as a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) police officers can also issue fixed penalty notices.
The closing date for consultation on the scheme is Sunday 26th March .

The local West Norwood community objected strongly to 3 tall towers 12-20 storeys high in Knollys Goods Yard ( site 19) pictured right when the council proposed new development policy plans for 14 sites across Lambeth. Last week Cllr Danny Adilypour decided to drop Knollys Goods Yard from the next stages of the formal policy process.
Cllr Adilypour’s letter to the local community can be read here.

Hundreds of local people and businesses also objected to the demolition of the heart of West Norwood’s town centre ( Site 18) and its replacement with 12 storey tower. In his letter Cllr Adilypour says he has asked for the Site 18 boundaries to be redrawn and to exclude housing at the Lansdowne Hill and York Hill ends of the site .
Cllr Adilypour took on responsibility for regeneration and town planning in May 2022. Since then he has been listening to the West Norwood community who want improvements and more new homes but not tall towers. The next consultation stage of the development policy plans will be published in summer 2023.
The council has delayed plans to 2024 to improve buildings on Norwood High Street -from St Luke’s church to Gipsy Road.
