A large site on London Road in Mitcham which is currently a car wash may soon be occupied by a five storey development which is too greedy for the site. With shops proposed for the ground floor and four floors of flats above, the new building would be taller by far than the nearby buildings on the same side of London Road.

A proposed four storey block of flats would be taller than Barclays Bank which is next to it at one end, and run all the way down to Magrath, which it would dwarf. The proposed flats are blocky, too tall, ugly, lacking any character, and entirely out of keeping with what Mitcham Village needs. Object now to protect Mitcham Village.

Merton Council's development company, Merantun, has plans to build on four sites, and three are in Mitcham. We have focused our comments on plans for flats on the Raleigh Gardens car park.
