Question

Will you look into the issue of derelict and underused public land at the Sutton Hospital site in the Belmont area of Sutton, owned by the Epsom and St Helier Trust? Have you looked into the capacity for land at the Sutton Hospital site being used to provide much needed affordable and social housing? Following news that the £219m redevelopment fund for St Helier has been axed by the Government residents need a future solution that will safeguard services at that hospital and which will utilise spare public land at the Sutton Hospital site.

I am aware of the land at the Sutton Hospital Site and I will be discussing how to bring it quickly forward for development with the NHS at the next meeting of the London Land Commission.
