Helena House proposal goes to appeal

by Ruth, Marlene, and Steve on 10 March, 2021

The developer has appealed against Sutton Council’s refusal to grant planning permission for a part-5, part-8 storey building with 41 flats on this site. The proposal was turned down last September by Sutton and further details are here

The proposal was turned down because of the scale and massing of the building, which is above the height limit for the site, the blank wall on the northern side (the visible approach from Angel Hill), and the lack of public realm or public benefits to offset the scale of the building.  

Planning Appeals are heard by the Government’s Planning Inspectorate, based in Bristol. Anyone who has a view of the proposal can make a comment through their website You need to enter the reference number which is 3264318. All comments must be received by 23 March.

We are very keen for this site to be redeveloped, but this is a key site at the northern entrance to the town centre, overlooking Sutton Green, and any development needs to have an appropriate scale and high quality design.
