The local rag dropped through the letterbox last week announcing the impending demolition of "Beds to Go" on Central Road and it's replacement with a new retail unit and flats. The Sutton planning website offers these morsels:
Application No: A2007/58661/FUL
Location:53 CENTRAL ROAD Worcester Park KT4 8EB
Proposal:Demolition of existing building and erection of a part two, part three storey building with roof accommodation comprising A1 retail use on basement and ground floors, six 1-bedroomed, two 2-bedroomed self contained flats and three 2-bedroomed self contained maisonettes on first, second and third floors together with nine undercroft car parking spaces, cycle and refuse facilities and relocation of common access stairs.
Just above it I notice that there's a proposal for a new shopfront at number 114, which I believe to be KFC. I'm assuming that this is an update to the existing shop rather than something new coming in as I can't imagine Worcester Park without its Friday evening KFC queues.
On another page there's also this back in February which relates to one of the pair of shops on the corner opposite the North End Tavern:
Application No: A2007/57287/FUL
Location:194 Cheam Common Road Worcester Park KT4 8QW
Proposal:Retention of existing ground level shop and erection of a three storey rear extension and conversion to provide one 1-bedroomed and two 2-bedroomed self contained flats. Provision of one garage, cycle and refuse stores.
Building work is taking place on this one, as you can see if you go past.
