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.
Plans lodge with Merton Council in 2019 for a five storey block of flats were rightly refused by Merton Council. A new proposal for a less tall block is an improvement, but still leaves a lot to be desired. It puts accommodation on the ground floor, while we believe that the ground floor should be retail, so that it continues the shopping parade along London Road.
There are bin stores facing onto London Road too, and there are other issues that need to be resolved.
