Brighton Road car park set for demolition after Subsea 7 office plans approved in Sutton town centre
Controversial plans to demolish a car park and build an office block in its place have been approved.
At last night's Development Control Meeting, Sutton Council gave the go ahead to proposals, which will see a five storey, 17,500 square metres of office space created on the site of the Brighton Road car park.
The site which had been declared as surplus to requirement has been earmarked for a mixed use redevelopment by the Council.
Subsea 7, a major engineering and construction firm, will complete their purchase of the site and move their operations there from their current offices around the corner in Quadrant House, next to Sutton station.
Dave Williams, vice president at Subsea 7, said: "We are delighted with the committee’s decision, which will lead to the creation of new jobs in a variety of disciplines, as well as giving Sutton a building to be proud of.
"We will be working hard over the coming months to finalise all planning and legal matters with a view to getting on-site as soon as possible."
The new building will include office accommodation, an on-site staff gym and a restaurant.
It is expected that work could start on the construction of the new offices as early as next month.
