Following the statutory consultation carried out in September 2013, a decision has been made by the Cabinet Member to proceed with the implementation of the proposed measures.

Following representations made to local Ward Councillors by some local businesses regarding parking difficulties for their patrons, the Council is proposing to introduce new parking controls in London Road, near Tooting Station. These particular proposals are to assist the businesses in the vicinity with their customers parking needs.
The proposed changes are detailed below and shown on

- To introduce pay and display only bays on London Road, operating Monday to Saturday between 7am and 7pm, maximum stay one hour and no return within one hour, with the first 20 minutes free. The tariff shall be £1.10 per hour. The pay and display machine will issue a 20 minutes' free ticket upon pushing the green button. Please note that it is an offence to obtain any additional 20 minutes' free ticket.
- To introduce an additional pay and display shared bay in Links Road, Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 6.30pm, maximum stay one hour and no return within one hour. The tariff shall be £1.10 per hour.
What happens next
A Notice of the Council's intention to introduce the above measures will be published in a local newspaper (The Guardian), London Gazette and posted on lamp columns in the vicinity. Representations for or against the proposals described in this Notice must be made in writing to the
Head of Street Scene and Waste, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX or email
