Council response

An independent consultation exercise was carried out to inform the designs and widening of pavements at this location. This consultation exercise and proposals were informed by published Council policy, the published local Masterplan as well as Mayoral priorities articulated in the Mayor’s Transport Strategy. Delivery access has been provided through the provision of a loading bay which allows long vehicles to load and unload.
The Council has listened to concerns of traders and provided/re-designated parking bays in the local area to meet these concerns and produced some new signage and maps. Alongside these new designations, provision at the junctions of Chestnut Road and Chatsworth Way has offset any loss on Norwood Road. It is anticipated given the significant level of local investment in infrastructure in West Norwood (for example the leisure centre, library, cinema and cemetery), the robust transport provision between West Norwood and Tulse Hill and the increased pedestrian footfall in the area that this will enable Norwood Road to be a thriving high street
