Kimpton prior to expansion
We are a BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT.
BIDS are recognised by Government and the LB Sutton who invoice the BID levy. Working with all parties Kimpton has lower
crime, is safer with much improved working conditions for our members.
THE BOARD KIPPA BID LTD
Members Support BID2 For Another 5 YEAR Term Commencing 1st
will be a 2% increase this year.
KIPPA has paid for Super Fast Broadband as pledged in our BID2 renewal booklet. Contact your Broadband provider for an upgrade, it should only cost
a few pounds extra per month on existing cabling.
We have been lobbying for years to improve the Infrastructure by removing the grass verges for parking. Rapid expansion
over the last few years has seen the Industrial Park, built in the early 1950's (for horse and carts) struggle to
cope with the HGVs of the 21st century. We continue to apply for EU, GLA and tfl funding
by engageing www.Soloman.co.uk who make the applications on our behalf.
Board will continue work with Sutton Council and others to insure that our members are able to expand
their businesses, create jobs and enjoy a safer working environment. Working with the LB Sutton we have engauged
Project Centre Ltd a specialist in traffic and parking control, report to follow.
Crime prevention and this project will be our main priority. Kimpton will also
be represented in all matters concerning the Industrial Park, local residents and the Police. The Industrial
Park is still expanding.

HGVs USE KIMPTON PARK WAY "NOT" GANDER GREEN LANE/KIMPTON ROAD which
has a 7 ft width restriction and Bus Lane (Inforcement Camera on Bus Lane March 2016). It
is illegal for HGVs to use Gander Green Lane or Hamilton Avenue. HGVs are causing major problems
for local residents and the drivers of the HGVs.
Working with TFL the Sinage was improved on the A217 and A24 July
2014 but it hasn't stopped them using Gander Green Lane. We are working to improve the signage again to
keep HGVs off this road.
We pay the LB Sutton for cctv, ANPR (automatic number plate recognition cameras) that
cover the three entrances, the cctv cameras are on all of our roads. Recordings are stored at the Sutton
Police Station for 30 days.
We provide a patrol service, G4s 365 days of the year, a car and
laptop for the local SNT Police to Patrol our Industrial Park and surrounding area.
We Work with the local SNHW team, paying
for 4000 leaflets, this encourages locals to report incidents on Kimpton and the surrounding area. 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 volunteer their services.
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 2016).
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
