MPs and Councillors Lobbied over Beeches Park Care Village Proposal

February 17, 2004 12:00 AM

In a high level meeting at Sutton's Civic Offices at the end of January, local MPs Tom Brake and Paul Burstow and Councillors Roger Thistle and Ruth Dombey were briefed about a proposal for the future of the Orchard Hill site. The site is owned by the Merton and Sutton Primary Care Trust.

The Care Village proposal is being promoted by the Queen's Mary's Christian Care Foundation (QMCCF).

Commenting on the Beeches Park Care Village proposal, MP Tom Brake said:

"The fact that the QMCCF has submitted a proposal that could create a community with shops and other facilities makes these plans particularly interesting. And if it enabled some of the long-term Orchard Hill residents on the site to continue living there, this would be of great interest to the parents and carers of Orchard Hill residents."

Mr Brake stressed that whatever the future of the site, he would want there to be extensive consultation with local residents as well as residents of Orchard Hill and their parents and carers about the future use.

According to the QMCCF, the care village would primarily provide care for the elderly and act as a rehabilitation unit for those who need long term care and respite care. QMCCF have included within the proposal a commitment to providing single rooms with en-suite facilities for each client.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
