Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are there any other ways I can have my say on the proposals?  

Yes, please call our freephone number 0800 955 1042 between 9am and 5.30pm, Monday-Friday. You can also email us at [email protected] or write to our freepost address Freepost RTXU-JGSR-KHLE, Your Shout, 28 China Works, SE1 7SJ. Merton Council will also hold their own statutory consultation, following the submission of a planning application. 

Who makes the decision on the application?  

The council’s planning team will analyse all the application documents and plans that will be submitted as part of the application. All these will be available to view on the council’s website once the application has been submitted.  

The summary of their analysis will be presented to a group of elected councillors – the Planning Committee. At a meeting open to the public, they will hear a summary of the application from the planning officers and will also hear from supporters and objectors. They will then decide whether or not the application should be approved.  

The meeting will either be online or in person depending on the situation at the time.  

When will the application be submitted to the council and when will the decision be made? 

After we have completed our consultation we will analyse the responses and make any necessary changes to the scheme. We will then submit the application to Merton Council. We expect this to happen in February 2023. Merton Council will then consider the application with a decision being made after a minimum of 13 weeks.

I am unable to make the online Q&A sessions. Will there be an opportunity to view them at a later date?   

Yes, the online Q&A sessions will be made available on this website shortly after the final event.
