Update December 2022: See results of consultation reporthere
The council wants to make the streets between Elmcourt Road and Chatsworth Way /Idmiston Road a safer, healthier and more pleasant place for all through the Street Improvements project for West Dulwich. See map of proposed area.
During February 2022 the council is collecting residents views on traffic, clean air, street trees, EV charging, crossing points and climate change in the West Dulwich neighbourhood. To have your say use the online map to submit detailed comments at https://westdulwich.commonplace.is/overview Deadline is Friday 25th March.
There will be a community walkabout on Saturday 12th Feb at 3.30pm and an online workshop on Thursday 17th Feb. To take part you will need to book online via the commonplace web site.
After a series of workshops the community-led Streetworks project has drawn up detailed design plans to change and improve Norwood Road.
The plans include improving Station Rise in front of Tulse Hill station, widening the east pavement between Chestnut Road and Chatsworth Way, options on parking, the Norwood Road entrance to Harpenden Rd becoming one way to allow for a new zebra crossing over Norwood Road, a diagonal crossing at York Hill/Lancaster Avenue and levelling the side roads with the pavement at their junction with Norwood Road.
But why not visit the exhibitions on Saturday 25th June 2.30-5pm at the West Norwood Health & Leisure Centre in Devane Way SE27 0DF or Wednesday 6th July 6.30-9pm at the Old Library 14 Knights Hill SE27 0HY ?
There is also a chance to comment on the designs at the West Norwood Feast market on July 3rd and the Country Show on 16th & 17th July.
The improvements will be funded by Transport for London and works should start in Autumn 2016. See our earlier posts: 9/2/16 19/1/16 and 3/6/15

The West Norwood Feast is a people-powered market celebrating the diversity, talent and entrepreneurial skills in our neighbourhood. There’s plenty to see and do including the Gardeners’ Corner by York Hill where you can pick up seeds, plants and tools, the Artisans’ Market on Chatsworth Way with locally-made arts and crafts, a Food Fair at St Luke’s with stalls serving freshly-cooked street food and even a Retro Village by Roseberys on Knights Hill with a market for reused, recycled and remade furniture and clothes. More details are on the Feast website and on www.facebook.com/wnfeast.
Lambeth council will have a staffed stall at the West Norwood Feast with an exhibition of plans for the Norwood Hall swimming pool, gym and health centre – an opportunity to find out more about the scheme.
As Christmas draws closer, so too do the events and festivities leading up to it. For shoppers in West Norwood, the advent of the festive season is heralded by the arrival of the Christmas lights – just in time for the 3rd /4th December weekend of Feast markets.
Come along to the area around St Luke’s church and Portico on Saturday 5pm to 8pm for carol singing, the fabulous Carribe Steel Band, a light installation, children’s christmas decoration and activities, neon ball juggling and street entertainment, and last but not least delectable winter warming food, mulled wine, snacks and treats. On Sunday between 10am and 4pm the Feast will have its Artisans market at Chatsworth Way, Garden Corner by York Hill, Food Fair at St Lukes church and Retro Village outside Rosebery’s the auctioneers on Knights Hill.
The Christmas lights will extend from Tulse Hill Station to West Norwood station. The original lights were funded some years ago by Norwood Action Group, local traders and the council. To give West Norwood’s shopping street a boost this year there is new lighting in the street trees – courtesy of the Mayor’s Outer London Fund – and a christmas tree outside St Lukes’s churchyard.
