Due to central government cuts the council is forced to make changes to our
childrens centres for families with under-5s . Lambeth wants to keep as many
centres open as possible and has proposals to run 18 centres from September
In the West Norwood area the council plans to keep Bentons Lane SE27 9UD
(Kingswood) & Hitherfield SW16 2JW open full time and Crown Lane SW16 3HX &
Rosendale SE21 8LR open half days. Cherry Tree at Barston Rd SE27 9HE will
continue its childcare service under Rosendale school.
To have a say over these proposals see the details are in this booklet:
And come along to one of the ten parent/carer consultation events, with a
free crèche, across the borough.
The nearest local events are:
Tuesday 8th January 1.30pm to 3pm at Brockwell One O’clock Club near
Arlingford Rd SW2 2TA
Monday 14th January 11am to 1pm at Rosendale Children’s Centre, Rosendale
Road SE21 8LR
There is also an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/K28FXN3
Deadline is Sunday 18th February
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

All are welcome to drop in to see the council’s plans to improve our local residential streets in Knights Hill ward on Monday 10th December between 3.30pm to 7pm at Macintosh Court, 269 Leigham Court Road SW16 2SB. A paper feedback survey will be available at this event.
Safety improvements are proposed for Glennie & Broxholm Rd and Knollys Rd, York Hill & Royal Circus and Knights Hill, Cheviot Road, Roxburgh Rd , Bewlys Rd , Leaf Grove & Lakeview Rd . And to the zebra by West Norwood station, to Devane Way and Thornlaw Road. There is an upgrade proposed to the green space at Tivoli Road- Holderness Way junction.
In March 2018 there was a strong response to the council’s request for ideas on how to improve our Norwood streets. Speeding traffic is a high priority for residents of Knights Hill ward. These ideas have been investigated and developed into plans and the council is now looking for final feedback before turning these plans into action in 2019.
For details see: Lambeth website
You can complete the survey online here – deadline Friday 28th December.
