Why do we want your views?

The London Plan, prepared by the Mayor of London, requires Merton to increase its housing delivery from 411 homes every year to 918 every year, up until 2029.

We need to consider how to meet the requirement for new homes in Merton. Your feedback on key issues is important to us. Please tell us what matters to you about housing delivery in Merton.

The engagement is not part of a statutory planning process but the findings will feed into the Local Plan in the future. You can read about the Local Plan and its timescales here.

The consultation will last for 8 weeks.

Why do we want your views?

The Council’s licensing policy must be reviewed at least every five years. The current statement of licensing policy expires in January 2021. We are now consulting on the licensing policy 2021-2026.  We are carrying out a separate consultation on the Cumulative Impact Assessment element of the policy.

The draft proposed policy largely mirrors the existing Policy but with some amendments to make the policy easier to understand and two new additions on showing films and Temporary Event Notice.

Review of Cumulative Impact Zones


Merton Council must review its Cumulative Impact Assessment at least every three years. This requires us to carry out an a assessment of the area, a Cumulative Impact Assessment, to establish whether there are any parts of the borough with a significant numbers of licensed premises and whether there is evidence to show that this is having an adverse impact on crime and disorder and public nuisance.
The Council carried out an analysis of its area and based upon the evidence available so far we are consulting on the following prosition:

  • Retention of the existing cumulative impact area of Wimbledon Town Centre for all licence types
  • Retention of the existing cumulative impact areas Mitcham Town Centre for off licences only
  • There is insufficient evidence to retain the existing zone in Wimbledon Village
  • It is not appropriate at this time to include any other area of the borough in the Cumulative Impact Assessment.

Please tell us what you think about these proposals by completing this short survey.
