Lambeth is preparing to roll out a borough-wide 20mph speed limit in Lambeth in April 2016. By reducing speeds to 20mph, it will reduce the number of casualties in the borough, improve pedestrian safety, encourage more confidence among cyclists and cut the number of incidents around schools.

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.
