Residents frequently ask local councillors about playing tennis at the club. Cllr Mike Smith met with the club members recently and the club decided to hold this open day. All welcome to drop by on Sunday 7th August.
Plans to replace the existing West Norwood Tennis Club buildings off Cheviot Road with a six-storey mixed use building were turned down by the council on the 3rd December 2010. The developers have appealed against the council decision and a public hearing will take place on Tuesday 26th July at the South London YMCA, King George’s House, 40-46 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9ES. If you wish to speak at the hearing you must let the Planning Inspector know at the very start of the hearing . It is expected to last for two days. The reference of the appeal is APP/N5660/A/11/2144277.
