Update - 13 November 2015

In October 2015 the result of the statutory consultation to the Borough-wide Waiting Restrictions was reported to the Cabinet Member for Environment Sustainability and Regeneration.

Approval has been given to proceed with implementation of the waiting restrictions with the anticipated operational date of 7 December 2015, see the Decision Sheet below.

For further information see the links below to the decision sheets and for information to the result of the statutory consultation please see the link to the Cabinet Member report.

Statutory Consultation - 28 May 2015

The proposed waiting restriction measures will improve safety, visibility and provide clear access for all road users particularly vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, pushchair and wheelchair users.

What happens next

A Notice of the Council's intensions to make the relevant Traffic Management Orders (TMO) for the required changes will be published in the local news paper (The Guardian), London Gazette and posted on lamp columns in the vicinity. Representations for and against the proposals must be done in writing to the Head of Sustainable Communities, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX or email trafficandhighways@merton.gov.uk by no later than 19 June 2015 quoting reference PO12-15.

Objections must relate only to the elements of the scheme that are subject to this statutory consultation. The Council is required to give weight to the nature and content of your representations and not necessarily the quantity. Your reasons are therefore important to us.

All representations along with Officers' comments and recommendations will be presented in a report to the Cabinet Member for Environmental Sustainability and Regeneration. Please note that responses to any representations received will not be made until a final decision is made by the Cabinet Member. Once a decision is made by the Cabinet Member residents will be informed accordingly.

Copies of the proposed Traffic Management Order (TMO), a plan identifying the area affected by the proposal and the Council's 'statement of reasons' can be inspected at the Merton Link, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, during the Council's normal officer hours Monday to Fridays, 9am to 5pm.
