Sutton Town Centre Historic Area Assessment

A 'Level 3' Historic Area Assessment (HAA) undertaken in support of the Sutton Town Centre Heritage Action Zone programme.

The HAA provides an evidence base for the centre's historic environment and distinctive historic townscape.

It can be used to:

  • Understand what defines the heritage significance of the town centre.
  • Identify the architectural and historic interest of the town centre's heritage assets.
  • Understand the distinctive historic character and appearance of the centre, and how the legacies of the past continue to contribute to the modern townscape.
  • Highlight issues and opportunities for change for the centre's historic environment and heritage assets.

This understanding can be used to:

  • Achieve more informed management of Sutton's heritage.
  • Assist planners, property owners, developers, heritage specialists, local communities and others in shaping a sustainable future for the town centre.
  • Celebrate the centre's distinctive sense of place which is anchored in centuries of growth, change and prosperity.
  • Capitalise on existing and potential roles that heritage plays in the town centre, composed of people, stories, spaces and buildings that can provide long-term environmental, social and economic benefits.
