What is the Draft Sutton Town Centre Public Realm Design Guide?
The Draft Sutton Town Centre Public Realm Design Guide sets out projects and guidelines to improve the streetscene. It has been produced to take advantage of the opportunity for improvement that is occurring as a result of the redevelopment of sites in Sutton Town Centre and the introduction of the Sutton Link (tram). The guide complements the recently consulted Sutton Town Centre Conservation Character Appraisal and Management Plan.
The document is primarily aimed at developers, the Mayor of London and Transport for London to ensure their streetworks are complementary in terms of design and use of materials but the council wants to make sure that residents have their say too - hence this consultation. It will have the status of a Supplementary Planning Document and so will have weight in the planning application decisions. The changes to the public realm are expected to be gradual and take place over the next 15 years.
When does the consultation close?
The consultation will run from Thursday, 12 September to 5pm on Sunday, 27 October 2019.
How do I respond?
You can respond by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you prefer to read a paper version, documents are also available at your local library and the Denmark Road (Carshalton) council office.
What happens after the consultation?
Officers will collate and consider all the representations and make appropriate changes to the draft document. The representations will be made public on the council’s website. The amended document will then go to the council’s Housing, Economy and Business Committee, provisionally on 10 December 2019, for formal adoption by the council. The document will then be used when deciding relevant planning applications.
Consultation Information Arrangements
