Welcome to the Belmont and South Cheam Residents' Association
On this site you will find information about the Association and how to become a member, together with a variety of links to other services, including those run by the Council.
The Belmont & South Cheam Residents’ Association (BSCRA) has been in
existence for over 50 years and has over 2,300 members in the Belmont and South Cheam area.
We are one of the largest and most active residents’ associations in the
London Borough of Sutton. The
Association is concerned with anything in our area that impacts on the quality
of life enjoyed by residents. We give
our members support on a wide variety of local issues and provide feedback to
the local council (and other bodies) with the views of our members in response
to formal consultations relevant to our area.
We work closely in conjunction with our Ward Councillors, we are
represented on the council’s Local Committee, on the police Safer Neighbourhood
Ward Panels and have close links with Neighbourhood Watch.
Topics where we routinely assist members include:
Planning: Planning policy, major extensions to house, infill housing, proposals for flats, change of use, businesses in private houses, major redevelopments, care homes
Environment: Waste collection, street cleaning, graffiti, protection of parks and roadside trees
Traffic and Parking: Speeding, traffic calming, road junctions, commuter and school parking
In addition to the above we have recently been heavily involved in:
1) Seeking to ensure residents received appropriate support during the Covid-19 pandemic through offerings from the Council or volunteer help
2) Creating a draft Neighbourhood Plan covering our area. This contains many important initiatives and projects. A draft version has been distributed for Public Consultation and we are currently assessing the feedback received. For more information on the Plan see our separate website Belmont Vision.
3) Maintaining a very close watch on the developments at the London Cancer Hub located on the former Sutton Hospital site. This encompasses the Institute of Cancer Research, the Royal Marsden Hospital (and its the new Oaks Cancer Care Centre) and the new Epsom & St Helier Specialist Emergency Care Hospital.
