Have your say on the Issues and Preferred Options Document for the South London Waste Plan?

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.

Where can view the waste plan?

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.

Why do we want your views?

In 2006 Merton Council adopted its Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). However, since its adoption there have been a number of changes to planning legislation, planning guidance and technological advances such as social media, which have changed the way public consultations and engagement takes place and are carried out. All this means Merton's SCI (2006) requires updating to have regard to these changes.

The draft SCI sets out how Merton Council will involve local people, local businesses, stakeholders and other interested parties when preparing development planning documents and submitted planning applications. It also outlines some engagement principles for developers, who may need to consult with Merton residents regarding their development proposals.

The borough contains a rich heritage of buildings, which possess historical or architectural interest. While the most important ones are included on a separate nationally compiled or 'Statutory List', there are many others which may also be said to contribute to the local scene, or which are valued for their local historical associations and these feature in a local list. In 2017/18 buildings, structures and memorials were proposed by members of the public, amenity groups and council officers as additions to the Local List. 

Our conservation and design officers have assessed the proposed buildings and structures against the adopted criteria and set out their recommendations in a report.

Please send any comments you have on the above proposals to design.conservation@merton.gov.uk
