Cllr Jackie Meldrum supports the petition to save Kahvah

This week Cllr Jackie Meldrum handed in a petition to the Lambeth Mayor from hundreds of local residents who support the  planning application  (ref 09/02740) for  521 Norwood Road (Kahvah) to become a restaurant.

To ensure a shopping centre is mainly shops Lambeth has a rule that only 2 out of any 5 successive premises may prepare hot food. The empty Wimpey next door to 521 and the nearby KFC mean the planners have to refuse permission for 521 to prepare and serve hot food.

Jackie is hopeful that, due to the high level of local support,  the councillors on  the Planning Committee will make an exception in the case of 521 Norwood Road at their meeting on Tuesday 3rd November 7pm in the Town Hall.

It would be helpful if you would let Jackie or Mr Sheraz at 521 Norwood Road know if you, as one of the petitioners, would be attending the meeting on 3rd November.  You can also let the members of the Planning Committee know your views directly by contacting the chair Cllr Toren Smith ( tjsmith@lambeth.gov.uk 07946 218 109) or the clerk of the committee, Antoinette Duhaney (aduhaney@lambeth.gov.uk 020 7926 3133)  both at Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton Hill, SW2 1RW.
