Why do we want your views?

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

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 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.

The London Borough of Merton will be continuing with the highway improvement works in central Mitcham, by introducing a new road through the Fair Green with further alterations to the surrounding road and main junctions. The project at the heart of Mitcham, aims to improve bus accessibility to the town centre whilst making pedestrian and cyclist movements around the area easier and accessible.

Whilst construction is underway, Transport for London will need to make some interim changes to the bus network. Works will be carried out in phases commencing on the 25 July 2016, weather permitting. Once the construction work is completed in early 2018 we will be able to introduce the new bus network for the town centre.
