Proposed new development
Travellers arrived last night and are camped on the vacant site on Knights Hill at the corner with Chapel Road. The police and Cllr Sonia Winifred visited today. The traveller say they are staying for a few days over the bank holiday weekend.
The police will monitor the site over the weekend but there are “no aggravating factors’ requiring immediate action. They will also try to contact the owners of the land. It is believed the land is owned by a cash & carry business in Tooting.
If anyone has concerns please contact the local police on 101 (or 999 if an emergency). Should you need to contact Lambeth’s Noise team over the weekend phone 020 7926 5999.
The owners of NMC House in Chapel Road SE27 0TP have applied for outline planning permission to demolish the 2 storey building, & warehouses at the back, and to build a new L- shaped block of 40 homes. The plans at this stage include an underground car park with 29 spaces , 28 one-bedroom flats and 12 three bedroom flats. It is not clear how high the new block would be. The new block would extend around the back of the 4 storey Weaver House in Chapel Road to Weaver Walk.

Cllr. Jackie Meldrum in Norwood High Street
Following the rebuild of Ernest Avenue (in front of West Norwood bus garage) and the new pavements around St Lukes church – work on resurfacing Norwood High Street, by contractors CVU, is planned between Friday 14th February and Friday 28th February.
Norwood High Street lies between Robson Road and Chapel Road and is part of the one-way system around St Lukes church – so there will be a series of traffic and bus diversions to allow the road resurfacing works to be done.
