The disgruntled residents of Elizabeth House are expected to pose some tough questions at a council meeting tomorrow night.

Residents of Mickleham Gardens, Pond Hill Gardens, Elizabeth House and Malden Road are furious at the planned demolition of the sheltered housing area in Cheam Village.

Sutton Council bosses decided in July that residents should be moved out while new “affordable housing” was built in its place.

Residents of Pond Hill Gardens organised their own committee last week.

The health and wellbeing overview and scrutiny committee meeting is planned for 7.30pm at St Dunstan’s School, Cheam and residents were asked to send their questions in by last week.

Resident Marion Rainsford said: “Our committee has come up with about 23 questions but we do not know which ones will be answered. They could just pick the ones they want to answer. We just hope to get a bit of sense out of these people.”

Chairman of the committee Councillor Stuart Gordon-Bullock, said: “We will try to provide an explanation to as many points as possible.”

The council has already back tracked on its proposals to kick out residents when the building work begins next year, saying it is “exploring the feasibility of keeping the most vulnerable people on site while the building work takes place”.

The council has said: “The objective of the regeneration is to develop the site to provide new affordable home for older people and vulnerable adults.

“It is anticipated that this will include a mix of affordable older persons’ accommodation, built to Lifetime Homes’ standards, including provision for extra care patients and for those with disabilities.”
