Merton Council is encouraging people to have their say on the regeneration of Mitcham Town Centre.
The council recently appointed consultants Space Syntax to produce an Urban Design Brief to guide developers in providing better shopping, community facilities, public transport and an improved pedestrian accessibility.
After speaking to local residents and organisations, the brief has been completed and you have until Thursday 21 April to voice your opinion.
Officers will make recommendations for any amendments to the brief after listening to feedback during this consultation period.
Councillor Russell Makin, Merton’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Regeneration said:
“This design brief will help to shape the future of Mitcham Town Centre for the foreseeable future. The consultation process is an opportunity for residents to let the Council know what you think of the proposals and suggest alternatives.
“All comments will be gratefully received and I urge all residents to take part in the process.”
Copies of the brief and questionnaire sheets can be picked up at Merton Civic Centre as well as Morden and Mitcham Libraries.
The brief can also be viewed and a summary taken away while on display in a caravan at Mitcham Town Centre. Dates and times include:
· Thursday 31 March, 2pm – 5pm
· Friday 1 April, 10am – 2pm
· Saturday 2 April, 10am – 5pm
