Diary of a Sutton Councillor


  1. The congestion caused by the work lorrues etc coming in and out of this site has already started, yesterday there was a complete hold up and the road was blocked as a work lorry blocked the road as buses were parked outside the library car park and two coaches waited there to escort children on a trip. Buses could not turn from outside the church into Shot field. This is ust the start. Have the Councillors in favour of this development recently visited this area at all? How long will it be before there is an accident?

    • Hi Mrs Gregory
      I think you are referring to the McCarthy & Stone development in Shotfield as no work has started on the Stafford Road improvements. We had complaints about the contractors operating outside of their permitted hours when the magistrates court was being demolished to prepare for this development, and we had to take action. I will see if we can do the same to get the contractors to behave more considerately. As you know we opposed this development as too large for the site and likely to cause traffic issues but it got permission anyway.
