Home Group, the developers of Victoria House in North Cheam, have recently contacted me with an update about their plans for the site.

Early in October there was a fire started by intruders within the building. Four fire engines were sent and the fire was quickly put out.  Subsequent to this, Home Group were contacted by CHAPRA residents association and local Conservatives regarding the ongoing security issues.

On the 21st October Home Group advised that dog patrols would be starting right away up until Christmas and then reviewed, and also that they would be installing CCTV on the 25th October. Home Group have also promised to send out a newsletter in the near future to local residents regarding an update on the building.

I remain hopeful that a revised planning application, one that the local residents can support, will be submitted in the very near future.
