Consultation – Merton’s Character Study & Small Sites Toolkit – Back Garden “infills”
This consultation runs until March 23rd
The Character Study talks widely about “infill” to produce new housing sites, including in back gardens. This applies to streets throughout the Ward, indeed throughout the Borough, but particularly to streets in the south of the Ward, which the study designates as part of an “Opportunity Area”.
Opportunity Area roads are Sandbourne Avenue, Daybrook Road, Morden end of Dorset Road, Morden end of Kenley Road, Windermere Avenue, half (Morden end) of Grasmere Avenue, Morden Road, Morden end of Martin Way and all roads south and west of Morden Road and Martin Way.
The Study defines Opportunity Areas as being “identified as significant regional locations with development capacity to accommodate new housing, commercial development and infrastructure (of all types).”
This could have a huge effect on the area we live in and we want you to have the opportunity to have your say. We have to be aware of course of the need for sites for new housing in London.

In addition you may like to look at the Small Sites Toolkit which goes hand in hand with the Character Study and is also open to consultation until March 23rd.
