Sutton scheme goes public… / October, 2012

The Harris Partnership has been working with LXB Properties for the last twelve months preparing a detailed planning application for a 120,000 sqft Sainsbury’s, hotel, restaurants, retail and high density residential scheme on a 2.5 hectare site in the heart of the London Borough of Sutton.  The Practice assisted the team of consultants in providing the masterplan to inform a development brief that the council was preparing for the site. The council published its development brief in May and following good public feedback the practice was asked to work up details, so Mike Schorah could present the scheme the GLA, a major consultee. The Practice is on target to submit the detailed application in November following a further public display in October. Mike Schorah stated ‘It’s been a great team effort in the office with Lee, Sarah and the guys from our in-house graphics company, Vector, pulling out all the stops to create some great presentation material that has won the planners and local Councillors over, on this key re-development site. We have a long way to go yet, but the site’s an absolute cracker!’
