Merton's New Local Plan Publication Stage 3


We are creating a new Local Plan to provide a sound basis for planning decisions. We know how important good planning decisions are for Merton residents, as they impact on the appearance of the local environment and how people use it. At the same time, it is in the interest of all who live and work in Merton to attract new talent and new business to enhance the borough's resilience to external change, sustain a buoyant long-term economy and ensure a quality built environment for generations to come.

Please take a look at

Comment on any issues within the policies, site allocations or land designations that you would like the inspector to consider at their independent examination of the plan.
