We are the Sutton Civic Society.
The Society was formed on 27 September 2017 at the Robin Hood Pub on West Street, Sutton.
Following the demise in 2016 of the Sutton and Cheam Civic Society, and in view of the enormous pressures on the town Sutton by developers and the rate at which historic buildings and heritage are being demolished, we have sought to establish a new Civic Society for the town of Sutton and its environs. Our constitution sets out the aims of the Society:
(a) the maintenance, improvement or provision of public amenities in the town of Sutton in South West London and its surrounding area:
(b) the preservation of buildings or sites of historic or architectural importance;
(c) encouragement of high standards of planning, architecture and civic amenities;
(d) the protection or conservation of the environment;
(e) the promotion of public safety and prevention of crime ;
(f) to pursue these ends by means of participation in public consultations and other public forums, meetings, exhibitions, lectures, publications, other forms of publicity and promotion of schemes of a charitable nature;
We aim to promote civic pride and to inspire progressive improvement in the quality of life in the town of Sutton and its environs for its inhabitants and its visitors.
In due course, the Society aims to become a member of Civic Voice, the national charity for the civic movement in England, and to become a registered charity.
