Creating more space for parking on Norwood Road – removal of cars on side streets
In order to free up spaces for people to park on the side streets along Norwood Road, Lambeth council have been working to identify abandoned cars.

Harpenden 'pocket park' request
As part of the Streetworks project it was discovered that 248 Norwood Road had grabbed a piece of public pavement to create a private car park that later became a dumping hot spot and a resting place for old mattresses. Having recovered the area, created a green space and planted it up, Streetworks are hoping that someone will now tend the garden. If any local resident(s) / gardeners would like to take it on and make the Norwood Road a better place then please step forward.
Statement in response to public meeting
Recently the Norwood Action Group helped to facilitate a meeting for local businesses to raise concerns about the changes undertaken by Streetworks along Norwood Road. At the end of the meeting a motion was passed calling for additional car parking spaces to be instated or reinstated, including six on the widened pavement along Norwood Road, with abandoned cars on side roads also identified and removed. Streetworks is a community-led project to improve Norwood and Tulse Hill.
