Please find below a copy of the consultation response I have submitted with Stephen Hammond, MP for Wimbledon, regarding Merton Council's masterplan proposals for Wimbledon Park. The consultation is open for comments until 22nd August, so do make sure you have your say.

Wimbledon Park Road Shopping Parade - July Update

As many of you will know, a planning application was submitted for the Winkworth’s site on Wimbledon Park Road shopping parade (2016/3337). The application is for prior approval to build a basement flat underneath the existing retail unit.

Justine welcomes Wandsworth Council’s decision to refuse prior approval for three applications for Wimbledon Park Road shopping parade.

Wandsworth Council has confirmed that is has refused applications for prior approval for Decorative Antiques (2016/2105), South West Cars (2016/2107) and Swan Dry Cleaners/R J Cars (2016/2108) on Wimbledon Park Road shopping parade. The applications have caused much concern for both residents and businesses locally, who were worried about the loss of important small local businesses.

A planning application has been made for one of the shops, Decorative Antiques, on the parade of shops on Wimbledon Park Road (233-243) opposite Southfields Station and I wanted to give residents an update and some points on how best to make an objection.

Many of you will by now be aware that the shops opposite Southfields station from 233-243 Wimbledon Park Road have been issued with Section 25 notices and I wanted to give you an update to clarify what is happening.
