Outer London Fund
Streatham and West Norwood, the two southern-most town centres in Lambeth, have been awarded funding to support the vibrancy and growth of their high streets.
The funding aims to encourage more people to the areas and make the most of what both high streets have already. The money can also be used to implement existing proposals from the Streatham and West Norwood masterplans.
The Outer London Fund is aimed at London's outer town centres and more specifically the parts that will not see direct benefits from current transport works such as Crossrail, or increased consumer spending because of the Olympics. The Fund is led by the Mayor of London.

Outer London Fund - Round Two
Lambeth Council has successfully bid for almost £3 million from the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund Round Two.
The funding will be used to improve the look of Streatham and West Norwood town centres, as well as to support a range of cultural and community events and support local businesses. Improvements are numerous but likely to include:
- shop fronts improvements to make the high streets more attractive to shoppers
- work will be undertaken in Streatham High Road to remove the central reservation and to make the road more pedestrian friendly
- funding will be made available for community events that build on the current popularity of West Norwood’s Feast and the annual Streatham Festival.
