The South London Waste Partnership are consulting on the South London Waste Plan. The partnership is made up of the following boroughs, Croydon, Kingston, Merton and Sutton. Sutton Council are the project lead for the plan and all Waste Plan consultations on behalf of the named boroughs above.

What is the Issues and Preferred Options Document for the South London Waste Plan?

The Issues and Preferred Options Document for the South London Waste Plan is the initial consultation document for a new South London Waste Plan. It sets out the preferred strategy of Croydon, Kingston, Merton and Sutton councils for the location of waste facilities and how planning applications will be decided.

Consultation run by: Environment & Regeneration
Start: 28 Oct 2019
Ends: 16 Dec 2019
Why do we want your views?

On 10 July 2019, we passed a motion to declare a climate emergency and set an ambitious carbon reduction target to make Merton carbon neutral by 2050. Over the coming months, we will also work towards decarbonising our own buildings and services by 2030.

The key sources of greenhouse gas emissions in Merton are road transport and domestic and non-domestic heat and electricity. We have direct control over a very small proportion of the borough's emissions (<5%) so making Merton carbon neutral by 2050 will require action from a range of stakeholders across the borough including local residents and businesses. Over the coming months, we will be drafting a climate action plan setting out how these targets will be achieved. 

By completing our survey you will be able to give us your ideas for how we can reduce greenhouse emissions across the borough and let us know what you think the challenges will be.
