Merton Council is going to develop a masterplan outlining their long-term vision for Wimbledon later this year.
It will seek to identify opportunities for economic growth and what enhancements are needed to the public space. Economic growth is important but so are the needs of the local community.
We want Wimbledon to thrive but do not believe many residents want to see intensive development as has been seen in neighbouring boroughs like Kingston and Croydon.
The masterplan will also address how Crossrail 2’s proposals for Wimbledon Station will integrate with the town centre. The knock-on impacts, such as traffic and parking, will have a real impact on those that live here.
This is why we believe local residents should play an important role in shaping the town centre masterplan.
