With over 100 of you writing in to the Boundary Commission, that we know of; we hope they will not ignore such a strong representation. MPWRA will of course keep you updated with the outcome. However, this is not the end of the line as any changes will once again be subjected to consultation across all wards.

For your interest, we have included Continue reading “Merton Park Ward Boundary Review Submission”
