Borough character study 2011-2015

Borough mapThe borough character study carried out between 2011 and 2015 highlights Merton’s specific characteristics and the local issues which development and environmental improvements could address.

The study breaks the borough down into 36 neighbourhoods. We've not been able to produce a character study for every neighbourhood yet. Once all the drafts are complete, borough-wide consultation will take place before the final document is approved for publication.

This study remains incomplete and we have prepared an updated version of the Character Study (2021) for all of the neighbourhoods in Merton.
