Work has now started on a deep clean of Sutton High Street. Successful Sutton, the town centre Business Improvement District, is working with local firm Paving Doctor, to deep clean approximately 10,800 sq.m of the high street. The pavement areas will be jet washed and treated to remove accumulated dirt, grime and chewing gum. The Chief Executive of Successful Sutton, Ross Feeney, said “I am delighted that we are able to start work on cleaning the High Street. At over one mile in length it is not possible to clean the whole High Street in one hit, but by starting with the ‘grot-spots’ we can start to improve the appearance of the High Street which will help attract new shoppers and businesses to Sutton.”
“Over time we aim to have in the whole High Street clean, and will thereafter be working with the Council’s street cleaning team on a continual rota of maintenance and upkeep.”
The Paving Doctor team will be in the High Street at various times of the day and will attempt to keep disruption to a minimum. Ross Feeney added “Areas immediately outside shops and offices will be cleaned early in the morning, before opening hours, to avoid disruption, whilst other areas will be cordoned off and cleaned during the day”.
