I would suggest that if it doesn't grow within 24 hours (you listed it for deletion 3 minutes after creation), that it be changed to a redirect to London Borough of Sutton Markalex 17:43, 25 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Is Shopping in Sutton notable? I think not...184.108.40.206 17:32, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Sutton, the town, vs London Borough of Sutton
I notice that there is confusion between the two in this article. For example, Education and Parks are, incorrectly, covering the Borough. I personally agree that the sections on shops and shopping need removing - they aren't appropriate. -Rodge500 08:33, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
- The confusion often arises between references to the borough and the eponymous central area of a borough. Generally, it needs someone with local knowledge to fix it. I've moved education. Some info on shopping centres is appropriate, individual businesses names, not usually - unless they are otherwise notable in some way (like it being where the store started). So that should be removed. There should be a Sutton parks and open spaces article (... and there is). I'll try to fix a few things when I do a navigation template for the borough.
- The borough article is extraordinarily thin and any contributions would be welcomed. Kbthompson 09:57, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
- I've done what I can, for the moment. It still needs to be trimmed for content (some is repetitive), and a greater focus (on the town centre). HTH. Kbthompson 10:14, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
I have removed the reference to "gamboling dens and gay bars" in relation to Sutton's nightlife. Gamboling dens sound delightful but i am not aware of the existence of any of these (or even gambling dens) Likewise I am not aware of the existence of any gay bars in the area. Obviously if anyone can prove likewise then please re-instate the relevant parts. Deckchair 13:04, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
" There has also been a significant rise in criminality in recent years, especially since 24 hour bar licenses were introduced in 2005 . In response to this changing shift in demographics the Metropolitan Police have chosen Sutton as the location for a new central police station which is currently the largest in south London. Since this explosion of club culture in Sutton, Sutton has acquired a somewhat dubious reputation."
This is at best specuation - at worst totally false

FYI There are no more nightclubs in sutton then there were in 2004
It would be better in my opinion to say...
"There has been a significent investment in suttons nightclubs in recent years"
Today Section revisited
- But the wonderful picture of pavement and gutter in Throwley Way raises the whole tone of the article. --OhNoPeedyPeebles (talk) 22:42, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
I am tempted to delete the education section as at current we have one un-cited "fact", and one single line stating that there are primary schools in the area. Removing the uncited text leaves us with very little worth keeping. Any thoughts? Deckchair (talk) 12:02, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
Although there are a variety of ways to describe suburban locations, there is nothing to preclude describing them as towns, especially if that is used in published sources. MRSC (talk) 20:35, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
It now forms a significant civic and retail district.
Too POV to be encyclopedic. Reads like the borough's PR-department. If it is significant, say why (though I doubt it is - no-one's heard of it).
These need improving. A shot of a bus tells you nothing specific about the town. The shot of Asda needs to be balanced by one or two photos of town-specific points of interest such as the two wall-mosaics and the millenium dial just outside Waterstones. It would be great if someone who knows how to could upload these. — Preceding unsigned comment added by A P Monblat (talk • contribs) 18:39, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
