Community Engagement key to Planning Success in North Cheam
We have assisted Home Group to obtain a resolution to grant planning permission from Sutton Council for a mixed-use redevelopment on the former Victoria House site, in North Cheam.
The scheme will deliver 74 homes (market, shared ownership and rented with 35.6% affordable) plus three flexible commercial/community units and improved public realm. This will provide much needed new homes locally and help to reinvigorate the district centre.
tor&co planning began assisting Home Group in 2014 and has helped them to redesign and promote the scheme through the planning system, with extensive community engagement with officers, local councillors and resident associations, including two design panel reviews. The local resident association had a key input into the design and development, leading them to speak in support of the scheme at committee.
