Why do we want your views?

As part of Merton’s Low Traffic Neighbourhood programme, we have been successful in obtaining funding for the introduction of a LTN, aimed at removing rat running and to encourage safe walking and cycling on Charles Road in the Abby area.
The proposal include a non-physical road closure in Charles Road at its junction with Rutlish Road, with planter boxes narrowing the carriageway to warn motorists.
An Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera will enforce the proposed measures. Access for the emergency services, authorised service vehicles and cycles will not be affected.

Residents who live in the affected roads will be allowed access as will staff who are based at the school; those with special needs children who need to be driven to school would also be exempt.

The restrictions and the Order will be in place for a maximum of 18 months. Anyone can object and make representations within the first six months of the experimental Order coming into force and the implementation of the works.

We are proposing to introduce Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in Merton to control antisocial behaviour caused by irresponsible dog owners, including dogs being out of control and attacks by loose dogs on other dogs, animals and people. The PSPOs would cover dog fouling, dogs on leads, exclusion areas and multiple dog walking.
 
Please tell us what you think about dog control in the borough and about the proposed PSPOs  by taking a few minutes to complete our survey.

For details of the current Public Space Protection Orders covering dog controls please see our website.

The purpose of the SPD (Supplementary Planning Document) is to help developers, decision makers, agents, residents and other interested parties to identify issues to be addressed in any development proposal application in which air quality will be important. It applies to development that may have an impact on air quality such as all major development, any development (including conversions) that introduces new exposure into areas of poor air quality; and smaller development that may emit odours, dust, smoke, and other fumes, for example, commercial kitchens and construction of basement developments. The SPD provides more detail to relevant policies in our Local Plan and does not introduce new policies.

We are creating a new Local Plan to provide a sound basis for planning decisions. We know how important good planning decisions are for Merton residents, as they impact on the appearance of the local environment and how people use it. At the same time, it is in the interest of all who live and work in Merton to attract new talent and new business to enhance the borough's resilience to external change, sustain a buoyant long-term economy and ensure a quality built environment for generations to come.

We want to hear from you as to what your priorities are and what you want to see improved or protected in your neighbourhood. We have written some short online surveys to help stimulate thoughts and views. You can respond to some or all of the topics that interest you.

In July 2019, as part of its School Safety Zone, the Council introduced restricted vehicular access operational Mon-Fri 8.00-9.30am and 2.30-3.30pm. This was introduced under an Experimental Order.

The Council has been advised by the school that its afternoon finish time has now changed. Consequently, for the scheme to remain effective, we are increasing the current afternoon period by half hour. The new afternoon restriction will be 2.30 - 4.00pm; the morning period will remain the same 8.00-9.30am
This change means the start of a new statutory consultation under the Experimental Order. This change will come into operation on 22nd October 2020. As before, you have 6 months to make a representation to this scheme.
