Merton's New Local Plan

Have Your Say (until 8th January 2018) 

Merton ise starting to ask for everybody’s views on Merton’s borough-wide Local Plan. If you are interested, please follow the link below to some short questionnaires:

 www.merton.gov.uk/newlocalplan 

This is the very first stage of a new Local Plan that by 2019 will replace Merton’s Core Planning Strategy and the Sites and Policies Plan. It will not replace Merton’s Estates Local Plan. 

Call for policy ideas and sites for allocation 

At this first stage, Merton is looking for people’s ideas that may help shape future planning policies. The London Borough of Merton would also like to hear from you if you know of any potential development sites for allocation:

Raynes Park Ehancements

The Raynes Park Association, of which our Residents' Association is a member, has launched a campaign to sort out the southern entrance to the "Scew Arch", which is currently a scruffy hodge podge of weed infested planters, rubbish bins, stumps of old street lamps and general urban detritus. Here's some idea of what it could be like.
