Flats proposed for Prince Regent site

by Ruth, Marlene, and Steve on 14 December, 2016

A planning application has been received to demolish the Prince Regent pub and build a 9 storey block of flats.

Residents will recall that last month the Government de-listed the Prince Regent Pub clearing the way for the pub to be demolished and redeveloped.  The planning application follows on from the exhibition held by the developers at the Holy Family Hall on 12 July.

Planning application No: B2016/75941/FUL has now been received.  The details are:

Location: The Prince Regent 342-346 HIGH STREET Sutton SM1 1PR

Proposal: Demolition of existing building and erection a part six /part seven/part eight storey building with basement to provide 41 residential units (comprising 19 x one-bed; 20 x two-bed; and 2 x three-bed), a 102 sqm commercial unit, 73 car parking spaces at basement and ground floor level, cycle parking, refuse facilities and associated access works.

The parking arrangements for the development will be shared with the development adjacent to the south (322-340 High St: former Burger King site now nearing completion).  There will be 17 parking spaces in the Prince Regent development for the use of residents of 322-340 High St. This arrangement requires an amendment to the existing planning approval for the Burger king site.  This has been submitted as planning application No: B2016/75946/FUL.  The details for this are:

Location: 322-340 HIGH STREET Sutton SM1 1PR

Proposal: Extension of previously-approved retail unit (ref: B2013/67198) currently under construction to provide additional 293 sqm of warehouse / office space, alterations to elevations, retention of seven car parking spaces and provision of 8 additional cycle spaces.

This proposed amendment to the existing planning consent  will double the size of the proposed shop by extending it backwards and taking up planned car parking spaces, which are reduced from 26 to 7.  These are compensated for by additional parking in the neighbouring Prince Regent development.

The applications can be viewed on the Council web site at:

We are concerned about the height of the proposed development, possible loss of light, impact of traffic and parking.  We have de-delegated the applications so that they will be decided by the planning committee.  Any comments should be submitted to [email protected] by 28 December.  Further details are here.  The Planning Committee will be meeting on 11 Jan, 1 and 22 Feb, and 15 March.
