Property developers are kick starting the regeneration of Norwood High Street with an 8 storey building (pictured) on the run-down site next to Travis Perkins. Their plans are for 19 flats with a children’s play space on the roof. And business space in the basement , ground and first floor.
Cycle parking is located inside the building but there are no vehicle parking spaces on the site . Two nearby existing parking spaces will be converted into disabled parking bays.
At this stage none of the 19 flats are specified as affordable.
To comment by 13/6/19 on these plans for 81-89 Norwood High Street SE27 5JS look at Lambeth’s Planning portal [https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/planning-and-building-control/planning-applications/search-planning-applications ] and quote planning application 19/01404.
Lambeth is working on a plan to deal with our rubbish for the next 10 years. It’s about how to reduce, re-use and recycle more waste, tackle litter and fly-tipping. Dealing with waste in Lambeth costs £25m per year so it is a significant part of the council’s budget which is vital to maintaining a good and clean environment.
To have your say please look at the draft Waste Strategy and complete the survey on the website below before Monday 10th June.

Training as Community Connectors
Do people come to you for advice and information? Do you link others in your local community to activities and organisations? If so why not be trained as a Community Connector?
Project Smith offers Community Connector training & support to give volunteers the knowledge & skills to help other people: things to do, places to go to access help & support and general wellbeing.
The training takes place over 4 days 9.30am – 3pm. The dates are on Wednesday 26th June, Wednesday 3rd July, Thursday 4th July and Wednesday 17th July. You need to attend all 4 days to become a Community Connector. You get a Royal Society Level 2 Qualification in Supporting Behaviour Change on completion of your training.
Community Connectors say: “I’ve learned so much through the Connectors programme that I feel like a walking/talking community notice board,” “Since becoming a connector, I’ve helped others, made new friends, feel better about myself, and even found job opportunities through networking.”
Project Smith is a Lambeth council/NHS project and aims to: support people to manage their own health and wellbeing by having access to the right information and assistance, help people avoid crisis and build stronger community ties.

Norwood High Street is part of the West Norwood town centre for planning application decisions – which means it should mainly be retail ( A1 use) . Many of the shops on Norwood High Street north of Windsor Grove and Rothschild Street are not prospering and there are many closed up shop premises.
In the draft Local Plan the council is proposing to turn part of Norwood High Street, south of the railway bridge to Windsor Grove and Rothschild Street, into a Creative Enterprise Zone – CEZ. This would encourage any new developments to have creative industries on the ground floor and maybe flats above. The CEZ does not affect the shops around the Chapel Road – Gipsy Road junction.
There are a range of other proposed local changes to policies in the draft Local Plan eg policy PN7 West Norwood and ED3 Knollys Goods Yard
The council’s policies used to assess planning applications are all published in the Local Plan which contains a full range of policies covering the whole borough eg affordable housing, schools & open space.
The Local Plan is being updated and the latest draft is published for consultation See: https://love.lambeth.gov.uk/lambeth-local-plan-oct-2018/
Deadline is 17th December. Comments can be made to: email@example.com
