Notes / History During the 1950's, "Mitcham Corporation claimed with pride to have the best municipal housing record of any authority in Surrey." Glebe Court, built on land formerly owned by the parish church (glebe land) was just one of several ambitious municipal property developments constructed during the post war era. There was little in the way of private building, or war reparations during this period, due to financial commitments and restrictions on materials.
