“Sutton and south London can significantly contribute to London’s growth and future success as a world city. We want to work with the Greater London Authority and the Government to unlock that potential and help achieve ambitious targets for housing, sustainable living and economic growth.”
Cllr Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council
Now is the time to get involved! Our Local Plan sets out our 15 year vision to unlock development opportunities to drive London’s economic growth. Our masterplan aims to maximise growth in our town centre.
It aims to strengthen the competitive position of Sutton town centre within outer London and guide prospective developments, in line with our requirements and aspirations. Our proposals for housing regeneration will mean significantly more homes to meet Sutton’s needs.
Working closely with key partners, we will play a significant role as both a planning authority and landowner in the town centre in advancing these strategic projects, shaping development through planning and policy, engaging residents and stakeholders and in delivering new investment.
We are seeking a new Housing Regeneration Manager to translate our housing and community renewal ambitions into concrete delivery plans. The role requires an understanding of the financial, legal and social environments in which we operate, and the needs and challenges of an outer London borough.
Our initial proposals for engagement set out in June 2017 have been revised and we are looking for you to re-frame our programme delivery plans
