Merton Council


Heading

Current and planned consultations


Consultation run by: Children, Schools & Families
Start: 16 Nov 2021
Ends: 05 Jan 2022
Why do we want your views?

The Council is reviewing the way it provides home to school transport as part of a council wide travel and transport review.

The vast majority of the Council’s expenditure on home to school travel and transport is on providing assistance for pupils and students who have special educational needs and disabilities.

The Council is seeking views on:

  • Home to school travel for statutory school age (5-16) children
  • Home to school/college travel for non-statutory school age (pre-school and post-16) children 

Our consultation will run from 16th November 2021 to 5th January 2022, with a number of ways to get involved and have your say, including:

  • Completing the survey below;
  • Participating in a Webinar. We are currently working in partnership with Kids First (the independent forum for parents of children and young people with disabilities or special needs) on this, and a date in early December will be advertised here shortly. We will directly email details to all families registered on our database, as will Kids First;
  • Sessions for staff involved to have their say and find out more and for children and young people in at least three of the schools where we transport the most children;
  • You can also email your views on the consultation to us at School.Consult@merton.gov.uk.

We welcome the views of residents, parents, providers, schools and other stakeholders on possible changes to the way we provide home to school transport.

Before providing your feedback, we would encourage you to read our School transport consultation summary two page summary consultation document and  Home to school or college travel and transport full consultation document, which contains details on the options.

Consultation run by: Transport for London
Start: 02 Nov 2021
Ends: 10 Feb 2022
Why do we want your views?

How should Transport for London decide which Tube stations to make step-free? TfL are carrying out a consultation to help us shape their future approach for step-free Tube stations.

TfL want to hear from people who rely on step-free access on the Tube network about what is most important to them. For example, is it more important that a step-free Tube station has an interchange on to another line, or, that it is next to a bus station? Is it more important for a step-free station to be near to a town centre or, to a hospital?

TfL are asking for your priorities, rather than specific locations, so they can apply this to every Tube station in London and see which step-free locations will benefit the most people. This will help create a fairer delivery programme that puts the needs of people who rely on step-free access at the heart of their decision making.

This feedback, along with passenger data, transport modelling, third party funding opportunities, design and engineering investigations, will help us shape how we prioritise and deliver step-free stations into the future.

To support the hospitality sector recover from Covid-19 restrictions, Merton Council is supporting businesses who wish to extend seating areas onto the public highway. In many cases, this includes pavement licences for tables and chairs on the footway.

We are also working with businesses across Merton, supported by Government grants to introduce parklets in some locations to provide additional seating capacity. Parklets are temporary wooden structures and planters which occupy parking bays and provide additional space for outside dining.

Parklets are not only part of the Council's commitment to supporting economic recovery, they also contribute to improved air quality, vibrancy and sense of place as well as reducing vehicle dominance in the street scene. 

Abbotsbury Road parklet is one of eight parklets being delivered across the borough. It will suspend five parking bays near the London Road junction on Abbotsbury Road. The order will come into effect on Friday 9th July 2021 and remain in place for no more than 18 months. The consultation will be open for 6 months.

Parklets are not only part of the Council's commitment to supporting economic recovery, they also contribute to improved air quality, vibrancy and sense of place as well as reducing vehicle dominance in the street scene. We are working with Light on the Common to introduce a parklet in Wimbledon Village High Street.
 
To facilitate this parklet, it is necessary to temporary remove the 2 pay and display parking bays outside Light on the Common as shown on the plan. This is being done under a new Experimental Order. The Order will come into effect on 11 June 2021 and will remain in place for 12 months. The consultation will remain open for 6 months.
