Collingwood estate

Stage: Proposal

Circa 250 homes are under threat of potential demolition on Sutton’s Collingwood estate.

The Collingwood estate comprises one high-rise block surrounded by a dozen 4-6 storey maisonette blocks, situated behind Sutton High Street, near Collingwood park and West Sutton train station.

The nearby Chaucer estate was clad with the same material and has also been listed as one of Sutton’s five estates earmarked for renewal.
