Wimbledon Park masterplan proposals response - update

As you may know, I made a joint response with Stephen Hammond MP to Merton Council regarding their proposals for Wimbledon Park. I have now received a response which I wanted to share with you. Please find this below.

In another response, Merton Council has also clarified the following information, which I think is really important:

‘At this stage, Merton is seeking to determine strategic plans for key aspects of the park and is not proposing any specific detail. Rather these would be developed through individual projects over the next 25 years of implementation.’

Justine said ‘My view is that this was not made clear in the consultation literature, which I think is a real shame as the proposals as they were advertised generated a lot of concern locally. I think if this had been communicated across effectively at the start of the process, it would have reassured residents that these were very preliminary proposal and not specific details being brought forward.

Nevertheless, I will continue to monitor these proposals and will await the findings of the consultation which is due to be published in October.’
