About Us

Your Resident’s Association

OGRES works for you and the local community ensuring your rights as residents of Sutton are looked after. At OGRES, we wish to preserve the local character of the area and maintain and improve the area in which we live. Please support the Association by providing feedback to the committee members or completing the contact us form on this site.

Join Us

OGRES is made up of local residents who give up their time to try and keep the area interesting and special. We need interested people, willing to support the committee by becoming members of the committee, or road reps. The time commitment is not huge, but does include about six meetings per year.

History

The area is designated an ‘Area of Special Local Character’ by the council, a distinction that OGRES is keen to maintain. These are older parts of the Borough which have a special local character, in terms of their townscape, architectural and landscape features, and which the Council considers should be conserved or improved.

Staying Safe

Sutton is one of the safest London Boroughs but there have been incidents of crime recently as in other parts of the capital.  Street crime is often opportunistic, so making yourself less of a target, moving with purpose and being aware of your surroundings will go a long way to keeping you safe.
