West Norwood town centre: Lambeth Council capital investment

Lambeth Council is providing capital funding of some £275k for three town centre improvement projects in West Norwood:

South London Theatre: investment in building a one-storey extension to the premises to create a new multi-purpose studio in the Grade II-listed Old Fire Station site. This additional studio will be used for public events, art exhibitions, rehearsals, meetings and presentations, exercise classes, and community classes.

Southside Rehabilitation: funds for new catering equipment, enabling the restoration of the building and restarting a programme that provides employment experience for residents with mental health conditions as part of a recovery pathway to independent living.

West Norwood Feast: a capital injection for the volunteer-run, non-commercial market to enable the future sustainability of its operations.

This funding has been allocated from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) in partnership with the Mayor of London through the Government’s Levelling Up Fund. The  projects fall under the UKSPF Community and Places theme, which intends to enhance local places’ social and human capital, support local arts, cultural, heritage, and creative activities, and develop existing cultural, historical, and heritage institutions.
