Merton New Local Plan Consultation
Merton Council is seeking views on the draft new Local Plan for the borough (Local Plan consultation 2a 2020). The deadline for taking part in the consultation is 1 February 2021.
Additionally the Government is consulting on major changes to the planning system in England. In its White Paper Planning for the future, the Government describes what it sees as the flaws of the current planning system and sets out radical proposals for reform.
In our view, the overall effect of the changes would be to diminish the role of local residents and their elected representatives in planning matters.
What we want to achieve: To campaign to protect and improve Wimbledon Town Centre for the future.
