A new master plan for West Norwood

If you are not keen on meetings but have things to say about the future of West Norwood – then take  a look at this new web site and its interactive map.

https://westnorwoodandtulsehill.commonplace.is/  It’s easy to mark the places you like and the places you would like to see improved. The map covers the area from Tulse Hill one-way system along Norwood Road & Knights Hill to Chapel Road.

Information input to the website will be part of a programme of public events, workshops and exhibitions  during the spring and summer to discuss what people want for their community and neighbourhood. The council wants to end up with a new 2017 plan for future improvements and investment in West Norwood.

The last West Norwood master plan was in 2009 – we have seen many changes and improvements since then including new schools and the Health & Leisure Centre. ( Work should be starting very soon on the library –cinema in Nettlefold Hall and upgrading of the South London Theatre. )

A new plan for West Norwood

The council is starting to update the 2009 master plan for West Norwood. A consultation  programme is being planned for the new year.

The plan will cover our main shopping streets and the industrial area, south of West Norwood station,  known to town planners as the KIBA (key  industrial and business area).

Residents do raise concerns about the range of shops in Norwood Road  making up the heart of West Norwood town centre. Online shopping is the latest factor impacting on town centres  across the UK.  For a brilliant history of shopping have a look at Robert Peston Goes Shopping TV programme- its on iplayer for a short while: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b039q44y/episodes/playerIMG_6582
