Traffic Management Order consultation in the borough will end on March 18 – give your views

Traffic Management Order consultations have started on February 25 and will close on March 18 2021.

“Following two consultations in Geographical Area 3 we received wide-ranging and valuable feedback to parking proposals for the area,” said a spokesman from Sutton Council.

“We have undertaken further analysis of technical data, looked at access issues for refuse collection and emergency services and have discussed the proposals with ward councillors.

“After a thorough review of our plans, it is now our intention to develop targeted schemes that will address areas of acute parking pressure. This means that for the vast majority of residents we are not suggesting any changes where you live.

“The traffic management order (TMO) consultation for the remaining parking proposals in Geographical Area 3 will open on February 25, 2021 and will close on March 18, 2021.

Key advice to avoid being scammed during the vaccination roll out

South West London Clinical Commissioning Group has issued a statement with regard to scams which have emerged as vaccination against Covid increases.

“To protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals, remember the following points,” said a spokesperson.

  • The vaccine is only available from the NHS and is being offered to people in priority groups. Vaccination is free and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. You can be contacted by the NHS, your employer, or a GP surgery local to you, to receive your vaccine. Anyone offering a paid-for vaccine is committing a crime

The NHS will never:

  • ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine.
  • ask for payment or for your bank account or card details, to pay for a vaccine or to confirm your eligibility for the vaccine.
  • ask you for your PIN or banking password.
  • arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine – at the moment we are also not making house calls to deliver or discuss the vaccine.
  • ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents such as your passport, driving licence, bills, bank account details or pay slips.

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police online or by calling 101.

Please remember: If you are asked to pay for the vaccine or asked for your bank account details, it is a scam.

More than 95% of Sutton children secure preferred secondary school places

Over 95% of Sutton children have secured a preferred secondary school place this year despite continued high demand for secondary school places.

“Sutton has outperformed other London boroughs for the number of pupils getting preferred school places this September,” said a spokesperson.

“Sutton performed over 2 percent higher than the London average with 95.4 percent of pupils being offered a place at one of their preferred schools, compared to 93.3 percent of children across the rest of London. 

“A total of 87.3 percent of Sutton pupils were offered a place at one of their top three choices of secondary school, with 66.2 percent getting into their first preference school, according to figures released on National Secondary School Offer Day by the Pan London Admissions Board.

“London has seen a drop in parents receiving a first preference offer, primarily due to late selection testing. This has particularly affected boroughs which have selective schools in their area, such as Sutton. “
