We were delighted to hear that Home Group has finally committed to starting demolition on Victoria House following pressure from local residents.
Earlier in the year, the independent Design Review Panel concurred with councillors and residents that proposals needed more work to better reflect the character of the local area.
Shortly after, Sutton Council granted approval to demolish the site. Home Group have now committed to get started on the demolition and are engaged in a pre-planning application process with a view to submitting a new planning application before the end of the year.
This is fantastic news and is something that Sutton Liberal Democrats have been working to get resolved for a number of years. We’d also like to thank residents and local groups for all their work in pushing Home Group to get this done. We look forward to seeing the plans for the site when Home Group submit their new planning application.
