Sutton Council is working with the Town Centre Partnership to help make Sutton town centre an even more thriving place to shop, work and live. From 22 April to 2 June 2009 we are seeking your views the preferred options for the town centre’s long-term planning strategy. We are preparing an Area Action Plan, with ambitious proposals for future shopping, leisure facilities, additional homes and office space over the next 15 years. It includes plans to create a cultural ‘hub’ in a new Civic Quarter and for major development at Sutton Station. We have talked with residents, business and others over the last 18 months and used what we were told to help identify our preferred sites and proposals. The Preferred Options document sets out a vision and policy objectives for Sutton town centre, in the context of the emerging Core Planning Strategy. It includes proposals for sustainable built development, improving the public realm and sustainable transport. Distinct town centre quarters are proposed to guide the scale and character of future development. The Plan also identifies development opportunity sites to meet the long-term need for additional shops, employment, housing and other development. The document is accompanied by draft urban design guidelines and proposed changes to the adopted Unitary Development Plan (UDP) Proposals Map.

Why your views matter

These proposals will shape the Sutton town centre of the future. The final Plan, when adopted, will form part of the Council’s Local Development Framework that will replace the adopted Sutton Unitary Development Plan.

What happens next

Once the consultation period has finished, we will analyse the responses and your view will help us move towards developing a final version of the Sutton Town Centre Area Action Plan.
