Welcome

Station to Station is the Business Improvement District for Tulse Hill and West Norwood


The Business Improvement District was voted on by local businesses in a ballot held on 27th July 2016. Over 75% of businesses who voted said yes to a BID.

The BID is funded and run by local businesses, with a small part time team managing its projects. It will invest more than £700,000 into the local area over the five year term and will also work to attract additional funding from external bodies.

Station to Station Business Improvement District is dedicated to making West Norwood and Tulse Hill a great place to live, work and play. It will work to draw visitors and businesses from across London, as well as encouraging residents and employees to support their local businesses.

Our theme groups focus on raising the profile of the area, growing your businesses and making sure the public realm is one of the best in Lambeth.

NEWS UPDATE

West Norwood businesses invest in their visual merchandising

It is important that businesses stay up to date and adapt to current trends within their communities, especially when a retailer has been trading for many years. Investing in a retail space enhances its appeal and engagement to consumers, allowing for the display of more products.

In December 2018, online retailing accounted for 20% of total retailing, with an overall growth of 13.9% when compared with the same month a year earlier. Despite the stronger online presence, consumers spent most of their money in stores and the majority of online spending was done within non-store retail. (ONS, 2018)

You may have noticed that Iceland, KFC and most recently Greggs have new front shops. Despite talks around online shopping, over 80% of total retail sales still occur in a physical environment, so spending on making the space as appealing as possible remains highly worthwhile.therefore maximising revenue.

We are especially proud and happy to see businesses investing in visual merchandise which will encourage more small businesses to want to open up on our attractive high street. A few new businesses have popped up on Norwood road, Sinom Thai and Sweet Carolina opened recently and 400 Rabbits reported to be opening up later.
