Major plans to redevelop Sutton gas holders site could get green light tomorrow

Sutton Guardian: How the transformed gas holders site could look. How the transformed gas holders site could look.

Plans that will dramatically change the shape of the town centre are set to be given the green light tomorrow night.

Sutton Council is likely to approve plans to demolish the gas holders and dilapidated tower block at the northern end of Sutton High Street near the junction with Crown Road.

The plan is to replace it with a Sainsbury's supermarket, a modern block of flats and a public square.

The council's planning experts have recommended councillors on the development control committee approve the development despite opposition from rival supermarket Morrison's.

The plans are for 186 flats, the new supermarket, which would face Crown Road, a public square and a redevelopment of the existing road network to make room for the potential addition of a tram stop should Sutton's plans to bring the Tramlink to the town centre be a success.

Ha ha.... opposition from rival Morrison's, I wonder on what grounds they oppose this?

They've recently opened their 'local' shop just along the road so obviously don't want any competition. Wonder whether ASDA don't want it to go ahead either?

Let us hope the Council get it right this time so as we do not end up with a massive bill as with Brighton Road car park?

We never seem to reach a sufficient number of supermarkets. They are usually uncomfortably crowded, just too many people in Sutton.

We need more jobs for the British, more affordable rent for the British, and more school places for the British. Maybe this redevelopment of a cruddy part of Sutton will be great.
