Old bank to be commercial units

Posted onPosted on 21st Sep

The next project to breathe new life into Sutton has begun with renovation works starting in the dilapidated former Yorkshire Bank on Low Street in the town centre.

The building is being transformed to create two new commercial units on the ground floor, and two new apartments on the first floor, as part of the Future High Streets Fund. The works are expected to be completed in spring 2023.

Ashfield District Council said the refurbishment of the former bank will bring vibrancy back into the long-term derelict part of Sutton, while creating good quality homes in the town centre.

The building will meet modern energy-efficiency standards and will contribute to the council’s net zero ambition.

Coun Matthew Relf, executive lead member for Regeneration and Corporate Transformation, said “This project on Low Street is just one of the dozens coming to Sutton that will transform the town centre. Residents may have already seen clearance works starting at Fox Street, which will be become a vibrant pop-up food area and car park linking Asda and Portland Square. We released the initial plans for Portland Square’s redevelopment a few months ago and the final plans are now being drawn up.

“Ashfield District Council worked hard to secure this funding so we are working even harder to ensure we make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our residents.”
