Merton Council is consulting on the future of Mitcham Carnival. We think this iconic event has lost its way in recent years, and our submission includes ideas and suggestions for making it more fun and more relevant.

New plans for flats on the car was site on London Road need some revision. They need to continue the shopping parade, and not put private front doors at street level.

Initial designs for the Mitcham Gas Works site have been published and they are very disappointing. The plan as it currently stands is for 17 blocks of flats, rising to 13 storeys. Read on for our comments and to see our submitted feedback.

We have been awarding Certificates of Appreciation since 2019. These are our way of thanking local businesses and organisations for keeping our area, including Mitcham Village, looking bright, clean and welcoming. We have just awarded five new Certificates of Appreciation.

We have submitted our comments on the Merton Council Local Plan Stage 3 consultation, and they are avaialble here.

Mitcham Village is teetering on the edge of losing its village character for ever. A lack of recognition of the village character by Merton Council, accompanied by the absence of positive action to preserve and enhance the village, leaves it prey to constant and increasing threat. Our action plan provides a way to begin to reverse the threat, build on what makes Mitcham Village a great place, and look to a brighter future for Mitcham Village and those who live, work and visit here.
