Thurlow Park Rd corner

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

Decision on Tennis Club site

Tennis club site

Developers are making a sixth attempt to build flats on the site of the West Norwood Tennis club. The council has turned down their plans 5 times and each time the developers have appealed to the Independent Planning Inspector who supported the council.

The council is likely to recommend accepting the sixth version of the plans (including 32 new homes, a gym, squash & tennis courts) to the Planning Committee on Tuesday 20th June 7pm at the Karibu Centre, Gresham Road SW9 7PH.

proposed view from Knights Hill

Local councillors and a group of residents remained opposed to the plans . Many people want to keep tennis courts on the site but think the proposed tennis club may be too small to be financially viable. As the development is car-free there are also concerns that extra parking by new residents & any club users will add to the pressures of parking in Cheviot Road and nearby streets. Please get in touch with Cllr Pickard if you intend to attend the Planning Committee: jpickard@lambeth.gov.uk

More details of the new homes and the management arrangements for the proposed new club are on the council Planning database – quote ref 16/01650 at https://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/online-applications/
