Fast Broadband comes to Kimpton, as pledged in our BID2 renewal booklet.  
The financial package agreed with BT Openreach will  bring us online January 2015 with 
a speed of up to 35 Mbs on existing cabling. You can stay with your supplier. 
BT will demonstrate the speed with a mobile unit in advance of completion.

Trucks to use Kimpton Park Way "NOT" Kimpton Road as it has a 7 ft width restriction and Bus Lane. Please instruct HGV delivery suppliers Not to use Gander Green Lane to access Kimpton,  this is causing major problems for HGV driver's and concern for the safety of local residents.
Working with TFL the Sinage was improved on the A217 and A24 July 2014 and has improved the situation.

We have installed ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) cameras and CCTV cameras on every entrance/exit and road on the Industrial Park, recordings are stored at the Sutton Police Station for 30 days.
We pay for a patrol service 365 and a car for the SNT Police, enabling them to Patrol our Industrial Park and surrounding area.
Working with the local SNHW team, paying for 4000 leaflets to encourage members to report incidents on Kimpton, these leaflets have also improved their attendence. They are the largest group in the Borough.

FORMATION OF KIPPA BID LTD a 5 year term from 1st April 2009 to 31st March 2014
Our members help us  renew for a further 5 years from 1st April 2014, the Board is made up of voluntary representatives.

In 2004 The Society of London Manufacturers www.soloman.co.uk
 (SOLOMAN) managed to get together a number of like minded business people and as a result KIPPA was formed to improve the environment and standing of the industrial estate. For just over 4 years KIPPA was funded by voluntary contributions from some of the businesses and a great deal was achieved in that time.

During 2009 a grant was obtained from the London Development Agency (LDA) via SOLOMAN which enabled us, with their help, to create a Business Improvement District (BID). The BID was successful and thanks to all the businesses, Sutton Council and Soloman, KIPPA BID LTD commenced on 1st April 2009.
For information on other BIDs in the area www.soloman.co.uk and click on"THE BIDs"
 
A copy of the BID Brochure is available, email kippa-@hotmail.com and we will post it to you.
We have a PDF that you can click on above or go to ANNUAL BID LEVY to download.
                                   

PROJECTS

KIMPTON ROAD WIDTH RESTRICTION GATES - After prolonged negotiations with the LB Sutton we have agreement to keep the road open permentaly (was open 2 hours morning & evening) as a width restriction to prevent heavy industrial traffic, however it will be redesigned for cars and light vans.

S3 BUS-  This may be re-routed through Kimpton Road/Wealdstone to Tescoe's and if so we will have the opportunity to redesign the width restriction again. Completed Summer 2012 but width restriction is not safe to use. KIPPA BID LTD paid for redesign,  Work completed April 2013 and is safe to use.

CHUBB SECURITY - Sold out to G4s 2012 who now patrol twice a night at varying intervals and provide a very good service.

CCTV- With the further assistance of SOLOMAN we have won a grant of £15,000 to help us install additional CCTV cameras and ANPR (Auto Number Plate Recognition) cameras and are in the process of working with the Police and Sutton Council to agree on the best use of these funds.
ANPR and CCTV cameras are in place on the three entrance and exits to Kimpton, paid for by KIPPA with some financial help from the LB Sutton. Number plate and photo of every vehicle is stored in the Sutton Police Station for 30 days.
KIPPA is also paying approx £5 k per annum for maintainace and rental.
With  warning Signs on premises around Kimpton and the additional cameras there has been no serious "Crime" (as of April 2014).


KIMPTON PARK WAY  - The exit onto the A217 will be increased to two lanes during the autumn of 2009 subject to Transport for London (TFL), a project we have been working on for over two years.  UPDATE -  The two lanes out of Kimpton Park Way were completed December 2009.

MINDEN ROAD- This will be opened at the far end to allow traffic to exit via Kimpton Park Way, which we have been working on for over two years. UPDATE - Minden Road was opened November 2009

SIGNS- The major road sign at Abbots Road on the A217 needs changing to stop HGVs etc turning into Gander Green Lane, finally  been agreed by TFL having been rejected twice by them. We have been working on this for over two years. UPDATE - The sign was changed on 1st October 2009 and will direct HGVs to Kimpton Park Way. Still not working, more signs required. Update-  following complaints from residents in Gander Green Lane we were able to lobby tfl to improve direction signs to Kimpton Industrial Park via  Kimpton Park Way, signs improved on the A217 and A24 July 2014. The situation has improved.

MAPS - It took nearly three years to get www.streetmap.co.uk to up date the street map of Kimpton..

COMPANY LIST- We could, with permission, produce a list of companies on Kimpton with name, address, brief description, web site and contact details.  This might generate more business, especially inter-trading, which we could all do with.  

OTHER PROJECTS - We are working on several but feel free to email suggestions.

MAP- We have agreement from the Borough that they will pay for a map to our design, located just before Wealdstone Road on Kimpton Park Way  showing Roads and the best route to that location.  We to maintain in the future. This can be seen on page two of this site, "The Map".  This will be a great help to all concerned, you could pass this web site on to customers and suppliers to help them find their way onto Kimpton, as it is still a problem.

It may be some time before "The Map" is installed  in Kimpton Park Way due to planning approval requirements.
Very pleased to say that "The Map" was located next to Big Yellow on the 19th November 2010.
