West Norwood and Tulse Hill are undergoing a programme of change ranging from street and park improvements to research and development around key business and industrial areas. Over recent years and across the next few years the area will have benefitted from a total of around 30 million pounds worth of capital investment. It is an exciting period for the communities in this area, who have a real opportunity to get involved and support positive change.
Lambeth Council have committed to a cooperative approach to project planning and project delivery within neighbourhoods undergoing regeneration therefore consultation is key to their success. Within the locality a number of communities and forums are building neighbourhoods plans.
The Visioning West Norwood and Tulse Hill programme has seen a process of information gathering and masterplanning being developed for the local area over the last year. This programme has outlined the vision for the area, identified local community priorities and highlighted opportunities for development and investment in the area.
The Visioning West Norwood and Tulse Hill programme consists of four strands:
An Economic Vision for the area
A Refresh of the 2009 Masterplan
A Health Check for the Key Industrial Business Area (KIBA)
The production of a Co-operative Local Investment Plan (CLIP)

As many residents will be aware Lambeth Council is consulting on priorities for improving streets, open spaces and places in the Norwood area (Gipsy Hill, Knight’s Hill and Thurlow Park wards).
The consultation has been extended to Wednesday 04 January 2017.
When Lambeth Council gives planning permission for new developments, developers provide the Council with payments to fund local improvements and we want residents to benefit from this income, so Lambth are seeking your views to help guide future spend.
Priorities you may want to suggest can include, but are not limited to, improvements to your streets, open spaces and community places; or support for jobs, training and youth facilities.
Ideas from the West Norwood and Tulse Hill Masterplan refresh, Commonplace, StreetWorks and other consultations in Norwood will be included in the final survey results. We are now keen to hear your ideas about what should happen in the wider area, especially outside of the main town centres.
To find out more about the consultation and have your say by completing a short survey at www.lambeth.gov.uk/gkt-wards.
Priorities will be published in a Cooperative Local Investment Plan (or CLIP for short) in early 2017, which will guide investment decisions in the area for the next three years.
A postcard has been sent to all 20,500 households in the three Norwood wards – Gipsy, Knights and Thurlow Park – asking for feedback from residents on what there priorities are for Norwood. This is your chance to influence the development of Norwood. Please do let the Council know before the closing date or via one of the consultation meetings that are to be held.
