Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response from the Mayor received 7 August 2013

I believe that the question relates to Grosvenor Avenue which connects with Grosvenor Road. Sutton Council is the Highway Authority for both roads and has allocated £30,000 of its 2013/14 LIP funding from TfL towards implementing a scheme on Grosvenor Avenue that addresses safety concerns raised by local residents and Ward Members. Sutton Council's current plans involve introducing a 20mph speed limit on Grosvenor Avenue with appropriate supporting measures. A final design will be consulted on at Committee level in September.
