16/00614/FUL – Installation of a roof top telecommunications base station and ancillary development

Residents on Trinity Rise, working in collaboration with your local cllrs, have successfully objected to the installation of a mobile phone mast on their street. 

Their opposition was based on a number of factors including possible health risks, the negative impact upon the areas conservation status and that the proposal would negatively impact on the skyline view from the park as it would change very much for the worse. 

Residents were also frustrated as it appeared that Metropolitan were intending going back on an agreement made in 2007 which said they would not install such a mast in Trinity – something which they have now given further assurances over and commitment to. 

One resident said that this issue “demonstrates very well how having the collective power of our association has helped us to win this campaign”. Something that we as local cllrs could not agree with more.

In December 2015 Lambeth granted planning permission for Picturehouse Cinema to proceed with the detailed costings of the redevelopment of Nettlefold Hall and the West Norwood Library, and last week the final stage of authorisation was completed for the new Cinema and Library. This finalises Lambeth’s £3m of investment.

Like so many in the local community we are thrilled this has finally been given the go ahead and are pleased that we will have a thriving town centre that will sit alongside a three screen Picturehouse Cinema. 

Max, Anna and Fred toured the site along with other local cllrs and planning officers late last year and were pleased that a significant part of the new building will be retained for library and community use. 

Work is due to begin soon with an estimated reopening date due to take place in 2017-18. This should be an excellent addition to the Norwood town centre and provide a valuable community asset.
