As a brief update the Tesco store at the junction of Norwood Road and Robson Road failed to secure the forecourt in breach of a condition. The forecourt was being used as a cut-through by traffic at the junction, resulting in dangerous manoeuvres, putting pedestrians and road users at risk. Lambeth Planning Team worked with the transport team and local residents to ensure the owner of the commercial unit installed droppable bollards, preventing access to unauthorised vehicles.
At the listed Westmoreland Lodge an illegal wooden enclosure was erected to facilitate the unauthorised use of a roof as a terrace. Officers secured the removal of the structure, re-establishing the aesthetic quality of the building and removing any harm from overlooking.
Planning officers also negotiated the removal of an unsightly and illegal advertisement from the front of a property along Norwood Road.
