Why Another Green Initiative?

There are loads of great organisations asking people to be greener and petitions urging council and government to do more. Pictures of littered beaches and wildlife surround by plastic is distressing, but it can be difficult to appreciate how it affects you directly and how you can make a difference.

This is about all of us doing something at a grass-roots level. Making a difference to your immediate environment and making small changes to your own habits will eventually scale up to effect a wider cause. Continue reading “Why Another Green Initiative?”

What is our Green Initiative?

We are asking people to take part in our 30 day Green Habit Challenge by choosing 1 or 2 green initiatives that they would find easy to do for 30 days. (With a view to their actions becoming longer terms habits.)

Download a pledge sheet with daily chart to help you! Encourage others to get involved by commenting on posts on this page and sharing hints, tip or useful links. And of course let us know how your challenge is going!

Merton 20mph Speed Limit – Everywhere?

Here in Merton Park Ward we’ve had a 20 mph speed limit on our residential roads for 10 years now, so motorists have had time to get used to the idea, even if they’re not always fully observant of it in practice.

But now 20 mph is to be the speed limit for ALL roads in our area, major as well as minor.  That includes Morden Road, Kingston Road, Martin Way and even Bushey Road.  In fact all roads in the borough south of the SWR main line out of Waterloo are covered. See the full map here

Signage and road markings will change to show the new 20 mph limit, but at this stage, no additional traffic calming is proposed.  At the time of writing, the statutory consultation 6th – 27th September, was yet to commence but when it goes live you  can respond directly on the council’s website.
