Love Norbury is a community-led initiative to promote and help regenerate the Norbury, SW16 area of South London. It is an initiative developed by the Norbury residents’ associations to improve our local area, build a sense of community spirit and respect for our neighbourhood. The four residents’ associations are:

• Norbury Green Residents’ Association (NGRA)
• Norbury Village Residents’ Association (NVRA)
• Scots Estate Residents’ Association (SERA)
• Pollards Hill Residents’ Association (PHRA)

The Love Norbury Committee meets every couple of months and it has in place a number of sub-committees who take forward specific pieces of work. The current sub-committees are:

• Events: this sub–committee organises all Love Norbury events for example Love Norbury in Bloom in June 2017 and the Annual Love Norbury Christmas Fayre.

• High Street and Retail: this sub-committee engages with local businesses and looks at a variety of issues such as ensuring business waste contracts are in place and monitoring restaurant food hygiene ratings. This sub group is responsible for the discount scheme and bringing new businesses on board

• Community Spaces: this sub-committee is currently looking at bringing the upper floor of Norbury Library into community use

• Green Spaces: this sub-committee looks at things related to our local parks and green spaces. A Friends’ of Norbury Park has been set up and a Friends of Norbury Hall Park is in the process of being established

• Planning: this sub-committee monitors planning applications and communicates any objections to the Council. They keep an eye on shop openings and alcohol licenses. They support or object planning applications as appropriate and liaise closely with the Council. The group also recently added traffic measures to their duties and are now looking at proposals for changes to parking and roads. The sub-committee has now organised two well attended public planning meetings to give residents an opportunity to find out more about local planning issues and to voice any concerns they may have about specific planning proposals

• Environment: this sub-committee works to make the area cleaner. It liaises with the Council on issues such a rubbish and fly-tipping, organises high street deep cleans, tree and flower planting and works on other environment related issues as appropriate

Love Norbury is always looking for volunteers to get involved in its work. If you are an NGRA Residents’ Association member and would like to get involved in any of the Love Norbury work described above, please contact the NGRA chair, Anita to find out more: contact@norbury

Joint Planning Committee

The Joint Planning Committee of the four Residents' Associations meets monthly to review all new applications, assess the decisions made on applications by the Council and to make representations. It is particularly keen to prevent the loss of family-sized housing through conversion to smaller units, loss of gardens, inappropriate new developments, overlarge extensions and the misuse of outbuildings as homes.

In addition to the Police Station, the BMX track, Windsor House and the Antic pub proposal, in recent months it has been pressing for enforcement action against the use of the site next to Norbury Station, is opposing the application to build housing off Pollards Hill West particularly because of loss of trees, visual amenity and the risk to increased surface water run away and flooding. It has opposed the plan to open another indoor shisha establishment. It is expressing concerns about the detailed plans for a new build house in Roche Road.

Without opposing specific applications it draws the planners' attention to issues relating to refuse and cycle storage and fire escape provision which need clarifying. It is also arguing for no planning application to be accepted on the Council’s register unless the applicant demonstrates they have discussed their plans with the immediate neighbours who will be affected.

The Committee welcomes new members being appointed through the Associations' main committees. If you are interested or wish to raise questions or have concerns about specific planning applications please contact NVRA’s representative Sean Creighton:
