THE BOARD KIPPA BID LTD.
MEMBERS SUPPORT BID2 FOR A FURTHER
5 YEAR TERM COMMENCING 1st APRIL 2014/2019
BID LEVY REDUCED TO 2009 COST.
Fast Broadband comes to Kimpton as
pledged in our BID2 renewal booklet. We are paying for this service, Openreach hope to have the work completed
We have been lobbying for years to improve the Infrastructure on Kimpton by removing the grass verges for recessed parking.
With the rapid expansion that we have had over the last few years and the Industrial site built in the early 1950's
(they still had horse and carts), the roads are not fit for purpose to cope safely with the HGVs built in the 21st century.
The Board will continue to work with the local Council,
the GLA and others to make it possible for our members to continue to expand their businesses, create jobs and a
safer working environment. We will continue to lobby for this essential improvement.
Crime prevention and this project will be our main priority, we will continue to ensure that
Kimpton is represented in all matters concerning the Industrial Park and the local residents.
The Industrial Park is
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 or Hamilton Avenue to
access Kimpton, HGVs useing this route with out of date Sat Navs are causing major problems for the driver's
and great 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 paid for the installation and continue to pay for the upkeep
of the 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.
for a patrol service 365, a car and laptop computer for the SNT Police to enable them to Patrol our

Working with the local SNHW team, paying for 4000 leaflets to encourage

attendence. They are now 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

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
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
CHUBB SECURITY - Sold out to G4s 2012 who now patrol twice a night at varying
intervals and provide a very good service.
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
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..
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
Very pleased to say that "The Map" was located next to Big Yellow on the 19th
