Cllr Relf with project leads from Kinver, and Miller Knight

The next project to breathe new life into Sutton has begun as the renovation works have started in the dilapidated former Yorkshire Bank on Low Street, Sutton.

The building, located in Sutton town centre, is being transformed to create two new commercial units on the ground floor, and two new apartments on the first floor, as part of the £6.27m of Future High Streets Fund. The works are expected to be completed in spring 2023.

The refurbishment of the former bank will bring vibrancy back into the long-term derelict part of Sutton, whilst creating good quality homes in the town centre. The building will meet modern energy efficiency standards to ensure lower bills for tenants and will contribute to the Council’s net zero ambition.

Cllr Matthew Relf, Executive Lead Member for Regeneration and Corporate Transformation, said “This project on Low Street is just one of the dozens coming to Sutton that will transform the town centre. Residents may have already seen clearance works starting at Fox Street which will be become a vibrant pop-up food area and car park linking Asda and Portland Square. We released the initial plans for Portland Square’s redevelopment a few months ago and the final plans are now being drawn up.

“Ashfield District Council worked hard to secure this funding so we are working even harder to ensure we make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity for our residents.”
