Life Centre faces early death?

Another Sutton Council financial banana skin could meet an early end soon as vanity project Sutton Life Centre, the geographically challenged albatross on the Sutton bypass faces up to huge losses. There is good coverage of this in the local Guardian at We propose a competition to come up with the best way that the money wasted on this centre might have been better spent on more mundane but important services like day care for the elderly, joined-up cycle routes or supporting a food waste collection service. Ho hum... The Life Centre attracted controversy from day one when it emerged that the council signed up to a deal to pay Chelsea FC £60,000 to promote the centre in 2012, instead of using the opportunity to showcase local football clubs like Sutton United and Carshalton Athletic.
