Two new controlled parking areas (CPZ) are proposed for the Streatham High Road end of Leigham Court Road. The deadline for comments is midday Monday 26/6/23
Firstly there is a plan to extend the existing Streatham Hill CPZ up to Leigham Vale ( yellow area on the map). To see details and comment go to: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/streatham-wells-area-proposed-cpz-stage-1-consultation
Secondly a new CPZ is proposed for Streatham Wells between Leigham Ct Rd , Valley Rd , Crown Lane and Streatham High Rd ( pink area on the map). The controlled parking times are likely to be Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm.
Most of the bays will be shared with residents who buy a permit and visitors. Visitors can either buy a full day permit or pay by the hour using their smart phone. To see details and comment go to: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/streatham-wells-area-proposed-cpz-stage-1-consultation Or telephone 020 7926 6799 for a paper survey & mention Streatham Wells CPZ.
The proposed Streatham Wells Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) covers much of the same area as the CPZ. The results of the LTN consultation are published online in 118 page report (linked at bottom of this webpage).
The LTN proposal has been updated following the public consultation. See “Summary of recommendations” on page 37 of the above report.

Proposals for a Controlled parking zone ( CPZ) and some no-through roads in the area between Norwood Rd & Rosendale Road and South Circular & Robson Road are out for an informal public consultation.
On Saturday 22nd April 10am to 4pm engineers will be at the West Norwood Library SE27 9JU to discuss the plans, hear your views and answer questions. The plans can also be seen on request at West Norwood Library.
To see full details of the plans & comment go online: https://westdulwich.commonplace.is/
The free 1 hour parking bays off West Norwood shopping street remain. Pay by phone parking is proposed throughout the area. Passing places on Robson Road are proposed to make the 322 bus route easier. The days of the week and the hours of parking enforcement are still at discussion stage.
There are eight road closures planned including: Chatsworth Way by the church; Chestnut Road by Barston Road junction and Carston Road by the south circular. A parklet by Eastmearn Road junction with Rosendale Road is one of the other street improvements in the plans.
The deadline for comments is Sunday 7th May

West Norwood’s main shopping street will be closed to traffic at night-time 9pm to 6am from Monday 9th January to Saturday 21st January. Norwood Road between Chestnut Road and Avenue Park Road is being resurfaced over 10 working days. Everyone is requested not to park in Norwood Road during the works.
There are no works or road closures on Saturday or Sunday nights.
Buses & through traffic using Norwood Road will be diverted, mainly along Leigham Court Rd and the South Circular road. Best places to catch a night-time bus will be near West Norwood Bus Garage or Tulse Hill one way system. Other local vehicles can use some of the side streets. See details of diversions here [Word file] or here [pdf]
If you have any queries about (for example about noise, parking, access or delivery) about the night-time road closures please email HIPresurfacing@lambeth.gov.uk or contact Ringway Jacobs, the contractor, on 0845 646 0059.
The council is planning a controlled parking zone (CPZ) for West Norwood’s town centre. An informal public consultation is due to start in July 2023 on the new West Norwood Central CPZ.
Implementation in December 2024. The attached map suggests how a CPZ might look for West Norwood town centre ( coloured green). The one hour 30 minutes free parking bays should be retained.
Other parts of Norwood are due for a CPZ a year later.
For more details of the new CPZ programme for the south of Lambeth see: https://moderngov.lambeth.gov.uk/ieDecisionDetails.aspx?ID=8323
Two thirds of the borough of Lambeth is now a CPZ – where residents pay for a permit to park in the CPZ where they live. There is usually an hourly charge, typically £3.94 an hour, depending on the CPZ, for parking in marked non-resident parking bays. Diesels pay more. Details of Lambeth’s parking schemes are here: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/parking
The aim of CPZs is to reduce parking stress for local residents and businesses.
Aldi have submitted a planning application to open a shop and car park on the corner of Knights Hill and Chapel Road SE27.
See the details and comment online quoting planning ref “22/04095” at Lambeth Planning Portal
It is not likely to be approved as the site is in Lambeth’s Key Industrial Business Area (KIBA) which only permits industrial work spaces (not retail uses) . It would also be a large retail unit outside the West Norwood shopping centre – its nearer to its competitor Lidl at Crown Point than Norwood Road’s shopping street.

Streatham Wells LTN proposed map Have your say on the plans to trial the streets between Leigham Court Road and Streatham High Road SW16 as a Low Traffic Neighbourhood in 2023. This LTN is to be called Streatham Wells LTN.
Through traffic will go around the area marked by Leigham Court Rd, Streatham High Rd and Streatham Common North. See map:[ pdf ]
To look at and comment on details of the proposed scheme please go to: https://beta.lambeth.gov.uk/consultations/streatham-wells-low-traffic-neighbourhood-0 The deadline for comments is 12 noon on Friday 23rd December.
The “Street Improvements” section includes plans to widen the pavement on Leigham Court Rd near Dunraven School and opposite the petrol station – removing parking from #153-213. A raised crossing is proposed for St Julians Farm Road opposite Julians school.
Reducing traffic in LTNs make the LTN area into a safer, healthier and more pleasant place for walking and cycling. Rat running traffic through the roads east of Leigham Court Road ( eg Knollys Road, Broxholm Road, Canterbury Grove, Leaf Grove ) may reduce too.

Glennie Road and Broxholm Road are a one-way road system for the duration of the roadworks by G.Network over the summer. G.Network are installing fibre optic cable under the road to provide faster broadband to homes.
Over the years many residents have requested a one way system for Glennie and Broxholm as these roads have parking on both sides and leave little room for the through traffic- which can be very busy, particularly in early evenings.
These roadworks are a useful test of how a one way system might work in the long term. Traffic is temporarily flowing west to east along Glennie Road and flowing east to west from Royal Circus along Broxholm Road. Highways engineers tell us one of the disadvantages of one way systems is that vehicles tend to speed up.
Please let your local councillors know how the temporary one -way system works for you, as a pedestrian, cyclist or driver, by emailing Cllr Ibtisam Adem email@example.com
There is a major programme underway across the UK for private companies to install fibre optic cable for broadband connection to the internet. The government plans for everyone to have access to the internet by December 2025 when land line telephone numbers will transfer online. For more information see here .
Developers are meeting the public, on Zoom, this Wednesday 23/3 evening 7pm to 8pm or Thurs 24/3 7pm to 8pm to discuss their plans to redevelop the old car workshops at 1-5 Waylett Place SE27 9AE which are next to B&Q.
The proposal at this stage is for 30 new homes over 7 storeys – plus ground floor employment space.
To book a Zoom session to meet the developers, Woolbro Homes, go to:
This is the first specific site out for informal consultation following the Site 18 West Norwood town centre online consultation, which ended only a month ago on 22/2/22. The developers hope to submit a formal planning application this summer 2022.
