Living in Sutton London
The London Borough of Sutton was once made up of rural villages, associated with feudal and royal estates. The “village feel” persists, and places in the borough such as Carshalton , Cheam and Belmont continue to be referred to as villages. The historic development of the borough is reflected in the number of heritage areas designated as conservation areas and as areas of special local character. In total, the London Borough of Sutton has 89 parks and open spaces within it boundaries, representing a total area of 1,500 acres. The Borough has some of the schools with the best results in the country. Low levels of recorded crime are a feature of the borough, being among the lowest in London.
The London Borough of Sutton is home to a number of notable environmental properties, including the following:
BedZED (Beddington Zero Energy Development). The 99 homes, and 1,405 square metres of work space were built between 2000 and 2002. It is the UK’s largest and first carbon-neutral eco-community. The buildings are constructed of materials that store heat during warm conditions and release heat at cooler times, and where possible, they have been built from natural, recycled or reclaimed materials.
Sutton is set to gain hundreds of millions of pounds of investment in new mixed-use schemes in its high street area at both its northern and southern ends. One development, Sutton Point, worth around one hundred million pounds was granted planning approval in mid-2013, and developers CNM Estates started work on it in Spring 2014. At the southern end of the town centre, it will include a hotel, apartments (with a car club), a health club, shops, restaurants and office space.
A major development by LXB Retail Properties PLC at the north end of the High Street area, including apartments, a Sainsbury’s supermarket, a mix of retail units, a landscaped square and public art was approved in December 2013 after a public consultation process.Work on site commenced in Spring 2014 for what will constitute the biggest single regeneration of the town centre in a generation. 463 full-time jobs will be created, when the project is completed in early 2016.
