Merton Council

Moving through Merton


Our world is rapidly changing, and in Merton, we’re rising to meet the emerging challenges we all face. We’re embracing the path ahead and building a better borough, one that’s ready for whatever the future brings.  

We are living in a climate emergency, so we know the status quo won't cut it. It's why the action we’re taking is substantial and has put us on the path to being a net zero borough by 2030. 

We’re creating places and infrastructure that are greener and more resilient, and building upon a culture that keeps our residents’ health, and the health of our planet, at its heart. 

How we are doing this. 

Our future Merton is one where we’ll all breathe easier - knowing our air is cleaner, that residents are easily able to get from A-to-B safely on bikes, swiftly on public transport or can charge their electric car (EV) across the borough.

Our Walking and Cycling Strategy will be a key component of our vision, setting out a plan for increasing active travel and providing the infrastructure that is necessary to support walking and cycling in Merton.

We're also focussed on becoming the best place in outer London to own or drive an electric vehicle. Our Electric Vehicle Strategy and Action Plan will set out how we can reach this goal, making sure our borough is equip with the infrastructure it needs to support the transition to electric vehicles. 


Why we need your help.

Merton is a great place to live with lots of opportunities to move around the borough. We have a fantastic mix of residential neighbourhoods town centres and business areas, and lots of green space, making it a popular place to live, work and visit. 

With more people living in the borough, we want everyone to have access to both EV and walking and cycling infrastructure and facilities.

Learning more about how these are used at the moment, how these could be used, and the factors preventing involvement will help us create space that meets the needs of the whole community!
