London City Car Club launch

Merton Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport and Planning, Councillor Russell Makin, said: “We welcome the launch of the first London City Car Club scheme in Kensington and Chelsea. Merton has been working with Smart Moves to set up a City Car Club in the Borough and fully support the scheme, which aims to cut car usage in the Capital.

“We are currently looking at a site in the Borough where the scheme will operate from and will be consulting with residents about the possibility of using Fair Lawn Road in Wimbledon. If the scheme is successful we may consider introducing other bases in the Borough.”
