The StreetWorks project has been busy of late working with cyclists regarding wider pavements near Ira Court, and the developing one way system by Tulse Hill. 

Furthermore, the StreetWorks project has been nominated for The Association for Project Management awards in the category of Social Project of the Year. This is for our work on project management training with young people in West Norwood and Tulse Hill.

Lambeth Council in partnership with the Friends of West Norwood Cemetery (FoWNC) has been successful in obtaining a Round One grant under the HLF Parks for People programme. 

The grant of £241,000 represents 52% of the development costs of a Round Two bid of £4,804,800 towards the total project cost of £7,165,333. 

The bid envisages capital investment in drainage, footpath, and roadway improvements, boundary wall, railings, and entrance gate repair/maintenance, landscape restoration, signage and furniture improvements, and works to monuments, perhaps including some of those in the Greek Cemetery.

In addition, the possibilities of building a visitor centre and of a second, pedestrian entrance to the cemetery at eastern end of Robson Road will be evaluated.

 The bid will also explore new ways of interpreting the history of the cemetery and also includes provision for training for staff and volunteers, and for apprentices in horticulture and in stone/monument repair/conservation. All-in-all then a comprehensive programme of works is envisaged that, together with an agreed way forward on monument restoration and grave re-use should ensure the future of the cemetery for years to come.

Project manager, Joahanne Flaherty has been appointed. Along with another officer Joahanne spoke to many local residents at the recent June 2017 WN FEAST about the project and its possibilities. 

In addition, Harrison Associates have been appointed as Consultants to the project.

Cllr Max Deckers Dowber is on the Project Steering Group along with members of the Scheme of Management Committee, the FoWNC, the local community and the Cabinet lead, Cllr Sonia Winifred.

West Norwood and Tulse Hill: A Manual for Delivery

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)
