The Lambeth Local Plan, together with the London Mayor’s Plan forms the statutory basis for making planning applications decisions..
Lambeth is reviewing its Local Plan in consultation with local people. And this is now the last chance to have a say before the Lambeth’s draft Local Plan is independently examined by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities &Local government (Robert Jenrick, MP for Newark, Nottinghamshire). The deadline for comments is Friday 13/3/20.
Developers consult on plans for Windsor Grove
The Local Plan is an important document for improving the supply of housing across the borough and addressing climate change: it is 544 pages and covers lots of detail.
Policy PN7 is the overall policy for West Norwood/Tulse on page 430 and promises Norwood High Street will get its own Special Planning Document later this year as the West Norwood Creative Business Cluster. Policy ED3 is Key Industrial business Areas – KIBAs on page 132 & 476. In light of the numerous local Thames Water leaks, Policy EN6, on page 245, on drainage and water management will be of interest to West Norwood residents.
Comments on the draft Lambeth Local Plan can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org by the 13th March deadline.

Roadworks and disruption will return to West Norwood late on Sunday 5th January at 10pm till June 2020. See attached letter.
Robson Road will be closed except for left turning traffic. So the northbound 322 (to Herne Hill & Clapham) will have to take the long way round via Rosendale Road, the south circular and back to West Norwood along Lancaster Avenue where there will be a temporary bus stop. Bus stops R and W on Robson Road will be closed for 6 months.
Chestnut Road will be closed at its junction with Norwood Road until 14th February. The vegetable stall will be stay put (but will first be taking a few days holiday). Lansdowne Hill will be partially closed at its junction with Norwood Road. Leigham Vale will remain closed too.
Bus stops on Norwood Road will change temporarily. The ones outside Sainsbury’s & Efe’s will move a bit north to Greggs & Knowles. The one outside former-Barclays/Decorators Merchants will be closed.
Thames Water are relaying a modern water main under Norwood Rd as part of a £14m project. Hopefully the work will be completed on time in 6 months by June 2020. Residents & businesses can pop in and meet the Thames Water team at the Robson Road portacabins during office hours.

Today Thames Water have packed up for Christmas leaving Norwood Road free of roadworks for a couple of weeks.
York Hill and Lancaster Aveneue are reopening so the 315 bus can return to its normal route both up and down York Hill.
Please do support our local shops – lots of things for Christmas – and free home deliveries by cargo bike https://stationtostation.london/cargobike/
Of course Thames Water will be back on 6th January for another 6 months. Details in this letter [pdf] to residents.
Developers plan to demolish the grotty corner on Thurlow Park Road opposite the Tulse Hill Hotel and build 43 new homes in a block up to 7 storeys high. The proposal for the new block is for eight 3-bedroom homes, twenty seven 2-bedroom homes and eight 2- bedroom homes. 17 of the flats are to be affordable.
The site is close to Tulse Hill rail station and many bus routes so there is no off-road parking except for 2 disabled bays and plenty of cycle parking.
To see the plans in detail, comments from Thurlow Park ward Labour councillors & other residents and to submit an online comment go to Lambeth’s planning portal https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/planning-and-building-control/planning-applications/search-planning-applications and quote ref: 19/03669
