Thames Water is back for Monday 6th Jan!

322 bus

Latest: Thames Water plans have changed and there will be no temporary bus stops in Norwood Road as mentioned below.

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.

In the meantime please report any leaks in other local streets direct to Thames Water  telephone 0800 714 614 or https://www2.thameswater.co.uk/leak/

Developers are  exhibiting to the public their plans for the old laundry site off Lansdowne Hill on Monday 2nd September between 4pm and 8pm at the Church Hall in St Lukes Church SE27 0DT.

The planning committee turned down the developer’s first plans (18/00580) in April 2019 . The developer, Leyton Clubs,  has now come up with a new planning application. They plan a 6-7 storey building with 51 flats and a separate 4 storey office block  between Waylett Place, Wakeling House & Easton House on York Hill estate & Lansdowne Hill. See map below:

The old laundry building

The old laundry building

Two key development sites in West Norwood are up for sale. One is the old laundry site off Lansdowne Hill and the other is the group of workshops behind Texaco garage. These properties are thought to be connected with Tesco.  GL Hearn are handling the sale – offers due by 21st May. For details see:  http://glhearn.com/SiteCollectionDocuments/Property%20Details/LansdowneHill-and-YorkHill-WestNorwood.pdf

The council’s Local Plan has guidance on potential future uses of land in  Site 18, the area along Norwood Road between Lansdowne Hill  and York Hill . A mix of housing and retail are the most likely uses. For more information  see page 201 of Places & Neighbourhood section of the Local Plan at :  http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/sites/default/files/Lambeth_Local_Plan_Proposed_Submission_261113-2_Part_11_Streatham_Clapham_Stockwell_Norwood.pdf

The last master plan for West Norwood was published in 2009 and much has changed since then. So the council  will be updating the Master Plan over  the next few months. Look out for events to have your say!

The latest fashion in gardens is living green walls. See this example, using recycled tyres, close to the rail bridge on Lansdowne Hill.
