Sutton High Street, Sutton

The Company has to work, in association with its development partner, on the procurement of planning consent at High Street, Sutton. An extensive & lengthy consultation with local neighbourhood groups, councillors and local authority officers resulted in a fresh planning application ( lodged in May 2020 ) for the regeneration of the site to provide a new build mixed use development of 30 residential units over ground floor commercial / retail space. A decision is expected in late Autumn 2020.
