Charles Cryer Update

Jake, Jill and Chris are very pleased to be able to announce that following productive discussions between the Council and CryerArts, the Charles Cryer Theatre aims to open in early November now that the lease has been agreed. 

CryerArts are a locally-based collective bringing different cultural activities together. Works can now visibly be seen to be taking place on the exterior of the building as CryerArts complete the necessary works to bring the building up to standard before opening in the next few weeks.

While the process may have taken longer than some had hoped, both the Council and CryerArts have been working tirelessly to provide a major cultural space in the heart of Carshalton. 

This ambition, which is now very nearly a reality, is also backed up by Sutton Council’s ambitious bid to be the London Borough of Culture for 2023. With the exciting news about the Charles Cryer, Jake, Jill and Chris hope that residents can show their support for the Council’s bid.

Dominos Licensing Application: Have Your Say

Recently, Dominos were allowed under the Conservative Government’s permitted development regulations to take on the former Siam Orchid site on Carshalton High Street.

Unfortunately, as this was a permitted development, Sutton Council had no input into the decision.

Now, the new Dominos have applied for a new premises license.

This new license would allow for the sale of Late Night Refreshment (hot food and drink) from 11pm to midnight Monday to Thursday and Sunday, with an additional hour until 1am on Fridays and Saturdays. The application also states they will not be serving alcohol.

The application can be viewed online here.

If you want to comment on the application, you can do so by filling in the form under the heading ‘Making a Representation’; by sending an email to licensing@sutton.gov.uk or by post at:

Licensing Manager,
Regulatory Service-Licensing,
London Borough of Sutton,
24 Denmark Road,
Carshalton,
Surrey,
SM5 2JG

The closing date for representations is 2nd September.

Please note that if no valid representations are received by then, the application is required by law to be automatically granted.
