Our response to final land deal purchase that completes multi million pound investment to make London Cancer Hub a reality


Plans to develop a world-leading cancer research hub in south London have taken a major step forward with the completion of the final stage in a £30 million investment in land.

Councillor Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council, said:

“I’m delighted Sutton Council has now completed the land deals necessary to bring forward a 100,000 square metre life science campus.

“This investment will support the continuing development of The London Cancer Hub and further collaboration between academic research, treatment and enterprise, creating in turn thousands of new jobs.

“We are now seeking a highly skilled and experienced development partner to take forward and deliver the vision of The London Cancer Hub. To work side by side with us in a partnering arrangement, to engage collaboratively with our key stakeholders and to ultimately realise the ambition we hold for the site.

“The Council’s investment in land on The London Cancer Hub campus is another major step in creating a global centre for science innovation, right here in Sutton.”
