Key Industrial and Business Areas (KIBAs) are Lambeth’s ‘Locally Significant Industrial Sites’ (LSIS) as defined in the London Plan and represent the borough’s strategic reservoir of land for industrial and business use.
The key aspects for our neighbourhood KIBA is that no changes are proposed south of West Norwood Station. If you’d like to look at the review document please see the below link;
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)
In May 2014 we committed to working with local businesses to improve our local town centre. We have been working with businesses to take the necessary steps to become a Business Improvement District. The Means were recenty appointed by local businesses to take this work forward in West Norwood and Tulse Hill and the first steering group meeting last month resulted in lots of positive conversation about the issues the BID could tackle.
If you own or work at a local business, we would love to have your input. Our next West Norwood and Tulse Hill steering group meeting will
be held on:
