When Merton Council announced its plans for emergency measures to support social distancing 'across the borough' we were dismayed to see the skew towards Wimbledon and the West of the borough. Our submission to Merton Council aims to redress the balance.

Of 14 measures announced just 2 come close to our area, for a couple of hundred meters along either side of London Road between the tram stop and Cricket Green. We asked around for people's thoughts and brought together a list of specific measures and broader principles for Mitcham Village and the surrounding area.

We have submitted this to Merton Council, and also asked ward councillors in the East of the borough for their support.

You can put forward your own ideas for measures that will support social distancing directly to future.merton@merton.gov.uk. Please share them with us so that we can add them to our growing list, and monitor progress.
