Funding is available for projects in Merton

The money has been paid to Merton by developers and landowners through the Community Infrastructure Levy to support the demands that development of new houses, flats and commercial buildings place on the borough. 
 
Merton Council will decide how this money can be used to support developments whether this may be by funding improvements to community facilities, green spaces, streetscapes or town centres, or related initiatives that enhance Merton as a place to live and work. 

If you have a proposal that you would like to put forward please complete our survey.  We will assess the information that you and other respondents submit against the criteria set out.

The London Borough of Merton accepts that poor air quality in the borough is a major cause of concern for our residents, businesses and visitors; as such we are committed to tackling this problem as a priority for the borough.

We have produced this new Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) that builds on existing successful actions and develops new actions to improve air quality.

As part of the process for implementing this Plan we welcome the views of residents, visitors and groups in the borough. Please take a few minutes to complete our survey so we can work together to tackle this problem.

Please read the Air Quality Action Plan before completing the survey

Residents and park users have told us they are concerned about growing numbers of dog-related problems in public spaces, such a dog fouling and aggressive dogs. We are committed to tackling these issues and, as such, the Council is considering making Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs).

PSPOs are a new measure which would replace some existing legislation and introduce wider discretionary powers to deal with dog-related problems. The orders can be enforced by fixed-penalty notices and prosecution.

You can tell us what you think about dog control in the borough and about the PSPOs that we are considering by filling in our survey.

To find out more about the proposed PSPOs, visit: www.merton.gov.uk/dogcontrolorders

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is reviewing how the public in London contact the police to report crimes and other matters. The approach being proposed includes improving digital contact methods and reducing the number of front counters. In Merton the proposal is to close Wimbledon Police Station and move the 24/7 counter to Mitcham Police Station.

The draft MOPAC/MPS Public Access Strategy asks a series of questions for local people and partners to consider. You can respond by visiting the website below and downloading the questionnaire.

The Metropolitan Police Service will be holding public briefing sessions in every London Borough so that local people can learn about the changes contained in this document and can give their views.

Each year the Government makes changes to the legislation that governs the calculation and award of the prescribed Council Tax Support (CTS) Scheme for pensioners and Housing Benefit (HB). These changes affect several aspects of these awards and Merton has a commitment to keep the local CTS scheme for non-pensioners aligned to the Government’s schemes. This ensures there are little or no differences between the prescribed scheme and Housing Benefit and the local CTS scheme and residents will get broadly the same CTS as they would have done if Council Tax Benefit still existed. We are consulting on two options relating to updating the scheme. You can have your say by clicking on the 'Take Part' link below.

The government believes that the need for additional capacity in the south-east of England is best met by a new north-west runway at Heathrow Airport.

The planning policy framework which the applicant for a north-west runway at Heathrow Airport would have to comply with in order to get development consent is set out in the draft Airports National Policy Statement.

The government is seeking your views on the draft Airports National Policy Statement.

The contracts for both the Taxicard and Dial-a-Ride services are up for renewal and London Councils may make changes in the future that could affect you.

For example, the service could change to use more black taxis and fewer private hire vehicles, or it could change to use more private hire vehicles and fewer black taxis.

Changes to the service may also impact upon the cost to you (or the number of trips available) availability of vehicles, waiting times and the nature of the service e.g. upgrading from a “kerb-to-kerb” to a “door-to-door” service.

To help design the new contract, London Councils want to know what you think of your current service and how you think certain changes could affect you. We need your views by Wednesday 5 April

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is asking the public to help shape plans to change Parliamentary constituency boundaries as it opens its second consultation.

Following a decision by Parliament to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK to 600 from 650, and to ensure that the number of electors in each constituency is equal, the BCE has been asked to make independent recommendations about where the boundaries of English constituencies should be.

An initial 12-week consultation was held in the autumn last year, giving the public the first chance to view and comment on the BCE’s plans. Almost 20,000 responses were received, which have now been published as part of the second consultation. The second consultation is an opportunity to comment on what others have said ahead of new proposals in late 2017.

Merton CCG is required to make the best use of an annual budget to keep people in the borough of Merton well. 

During 2016/17 we have worked hard to find savings of £7.3m. Pressures on expenditure will continue to increase in 2017/18 and it's expected that the CCG will need to find at least another £13m of savings to bring the CCG back into financial balance and provide for cost increases and greater patient demand next year. This is a substantial financial challenge for a CCG of our size. 

To ensure that we live within our means in future and that everyone in Merton has equal access to operations; and that only treatments which offer value to our population are commissioned we are considering some changes to local healthcare.
