Norwood Junction renaming proposal gets short shrift from Advertiser readers

SEVEN out of ten Advertiser readers oppose a move to rename Norwood Junction station 'South Norwood'.

A poll on our website has revealed that 70 per cent of the more than 500 people who voted were against the idea, proposed by Labour councillor Paul Scott and reported in last week's Advertiser.

Cllr Scott suggested the name could assist with regenerating and rebranding the area.

But many residents, including local history enthusiast John Hickman, argued strongly against such a move, with Mr Hickman citing both the historical and financial cost of the idea.

We've also been inundated with comments and letters, opposing the proposal.

Tony Holding, from South Norwood, wrote:"What evidence is there that a name change will actually do any good or bring new investment to the area, as Mr Scott suggests?

"The cost of the name change at Smitham ran into perhaps hundreds of thousands of pounds and a similar cost at Norwood Junction is unlikely to be borne by Network Rail and Transport for London on a whim."
