Last February we posted on the forthcoming tree planting that was to take place in the ward, and which was due in large part to the residents of Thurlow Park. 

The residents association on Chancellor Grove are a great example of a positive community in action.

As an update we wanted to let residents now that while we await trees to be planted in Guernsey, Harpenden, Ulverstone and Deronda we expect to see Romola, Berwyn and Deerbroke added to the tree replacement list for next season. 

More trees coming to Thurlow Parks’ streets

Over the coming months lots of new trees will be planted across the borough, and specifically, in Thurlow Park, as well as in other parts of Norwood. 

This comes after much hard work from many residents. We will continue to support residents that requests treee so please let us know if your street needs a tree replaced. 

The streets that should see new trees are; St Faiths, Guernsey, Deronda, Elmcourt, Birkbeck Hill, Carson, Rosendale, Tulsemere, Chancellor, Arduli, Eastmearn, Lancaster, Harpenden, and Ulverstone. 

Surveyors doing a topographical survey of Rosendale Road for Quietways

There was some concern about SV Surveyors doing some work on Rosendale Road, following conversations they had with residents.

We have confirmed with Lambeth and with Sustrans that they have no plans to remove trees along Rosendale Road. Only designs which come from ideas and suggestions during co-design events, meetings with businesses and residents’ associations will be put forward at the design showcases on 6th and 9th December.

We have been very clear that communication needs to be regular and transparent, and that we would not support the removal of Rosendale Road’s trees.
