Consultation on the Draft Sutton Town Centre Spatial Masterplan

Wednesday 23rd January 2019 until 5.00pm Friday 22nd February 2019

The Council is seeking public feedback on a new Spatial Masterplan and accompanying paper – Sutton Town Centre Rethink, Repurpose, Remake, for Sutton Town Centre.

The proposed Spatial Masterplan will provide a refresh and update of the 2007 Masterplan for Sutton in Ashfield (and Kirkby in Ashfield) undertaken by ARUP.

The updated Sutton Town Centre Spatial Masterplan aims to provide a high-level framework for future investment and development which maximises the opportunities for Sutton and capitalises on its existing assets. In particular it:

  • Provides a consensus and common understanding of Sutton Town Centre as a place – its character and identity.
  • Establishes a clear Vision for Sutton Town Centre to guide its development and improvements to 2029.
  • Provides clear design principles for subsequent new development / projects with an emphasis on sustainability.
  • Identifies sites and building where redevelopment and improvements will be encouraged.
  • Aims to improve links to and within the Town Centre for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users.
  • Sets out how developments/projects and initiatives could be delivered, who would be involved in delivery, how they might be funded and by what mechanism.
  • Provides an evidence base for the emerging Local Plan.
