Have your say on the design options for the new Bishopsford Bridge

We would like to hear your views on the design options for the new Bishopsford Bridge. We are seeking early views so that local residents, businesses and other organisations have an early input into the design of the new bridge.

The views we receive to this consultation will be taken into account in the design we submit for seeking planning permission. The council's planning department will undertake another public consultation as part of considering the planning application.

Please take this opportunity to share your thoughts with us – survey open until the end of Monday 1st June 2020.

Why do we want your views?

Funding from developers is collected by Merton through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) to support the demand that new homes and other development places on the borough. A portion of this (15%) is set aside for the Neighbourhood Fund to directly fund local projects that address development demands on Merton and meet local priorities that enhance Merton as a place to live and work.

Why do we want your views?
Over the past 4 years, effective enforcement of parking and traffic restrictions has not provided the necessary deterrent to improve the behaviour of some drivers. As a consequence Merton is considering a proposal to change parking PCN charges from the current Band B to a higher Band A.
 
The change of PCN from band B to band A will be a more effective deterrent to inconsiderate parking and should reduce the number of vehicles parking in contravention which causes additional congestion and can endanger other road users.

Merton wishes to seek the views of residents and anyone who parks in Merton about the proposal to increase the level of PCN charges.

More details on what this proposal means can be found on our website

Why do we want your views?

Merton is keen to safeguard its heritage for future generations, ensuring that it is relevant and accessible to all. As such, we are undertaking public consultation, which is key if we are to address the learning needs and cultural interests of the local community.

To participate in the consultation, please read through our draft Heritage Strategy and let us know what you think by completing our questionnaire. Your input will be used to inform the final strategy.
