Current and planned consultations


Consultation run by: Environment & Regeneration
Start: 12 Jul 2021
Ends: 12 Jan 2022
Why do we want your views?

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.
