Have Your Say on Local Improvements

by Sam, Ruth and Chris on 23 August, 2021

Residents are being invited to comment on proposals to see which you would like introduced in our local area.  These projects have been suggested in consultation with local residents’ and Friends’ groups.

Funding is available from the Neighbourhood Fund. This is a levy paid by developers when they build new housing or retail space in Sutton, to be spent on community improvements within the Borough e.g. the renovation of a community centre, new play equipment, repair of footpaths or tree planting.

Last year, the Neighbourhood Fund approved funding for 24 different projects totalling over £565K, including the repair of Beddington Village Hall roof and a new shelter and notice boards for the Ridge Road allotments.

The projects listed for Sutton North include:

Path in Rosehill Park East
  • Resurfacing the top path through Rose Hill Park East and Greenshaw Woods which is potholed and frequently water logged;
  • A pyracantha hedge in Rose Hill Park East at the back of Rosehill Avenue – to provide a screen between the housing and the park to improve security, screen off fly tipping and provide a wildlife habitat;
  • A bike track for young cyclists in Rosehill Rec.;
  • Hedging in Rosehill Rec. to replace the dead box hedge around the garden planted by the Friends and to aim at Green Flag status;
  • New play equipment in Collingwood Recreation Ground designed for juniors;
  • Replacing the dilapidated fencing in Collingwood Recreation Ground to make the park more welcoming for visitors.

The survey is live on the Council’s consultation website here until 3 October. Here you can see all the projects for the whole Borough. Your comments are important and will help to decide which projects will receive funding.

Ruth, Marlene and Steve
