Come and see what the year long Thames Water road works on Norwood Road will mean to you. The detailed plans are expected to be displayed on Monday 13th May 5pm to 8pm at  Salvation Army Hall 246 Norwood Road SE27 9AW and on Tuesday 14tH May  1pm to 4pm at West Norwood Library / Picture House, Norwood High Street SE27 9JX .

The works are due to start in evening Monday 27th May . The project is in stages with part of Norwood Road reduced to one line of traffic and some side roads closed up to June 2020.

Parking in Devane Way

Parking bays on Devane Way

Parking is very limited in Devane Way SE27 –  the road leading  up to West Norwood Health  & Leisure Centre. Most people access the centre on foot.

Next week the parking bays will be repainted to clearly indicate where parking is permitted for up to 10 minutes. Parking enforcement teams will visit from time to time. They will issue tickets to vehicles they see parked for over 10 minutes.

Barrier with buzzer

 

There are 5 parking spaces for blue badge holders right outside the Health & Leisure Centre. Anyone with limited mobility who needs to park or be dropped off must use the buzzer beside the barrier to speak to reception.

Uplift for Norwood High Street?

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: localplan@lambeth.gov.uk

Improving our local streets

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.
