At the heart of Merton lies Morden, home of Merton Council’s Civic Centre. An established communal centre means that it is thriving with shops, cafes and businesses, including the Council’s own. It has excellent transport links with a busy underground station, two tram stops and 12 bus routes. It is also well linked to major roads including the A24 and A3. There is an exciting and ambitious regeneration plan for the area to ensure that it fulfils its urban potential as an asset to the borough.
Raynes Park is a gem with a vibrant community. It has one of the lowest vacancy rates and is growing rapidly with more than 120 new homes, new retail spaces, including Waitrose and Sainsbury’s as well as an expanding café community. With more than 20 scattered industrial businesses and four industrial parks, the Council is working to increase business space and accessibility in the area.
Colleagues at Kingston Council have begun a consultation on the proposed New Malden to Raynes Park cycle path. You may recall from previous community forum meetings that this path is planned to run along Thames Water land, parallel to the railway line. They are holding a number of public exhibition events over the next few weeks and there is an online survey for residents to comment on the proposals. The consultation is open until 17 July 2017. More information is available from their website at http://www.kingstonconversations.co.uk/go-cycle-new-malden-to-raynes-park.
Described as the powerhouse of Merton, Wimbledon provides 50% of the Borough’s employment. It is home to renowned national, international and independent business brands that work together to create a vibrant and flourishing business community. Supporting this exciting business community is Love Wimbledon, a Business Improvement District, set up specifically for the benefit of businesses to improve and promote the town centre.
Well-known for the tennis, this delightful high street combines independent shops, cafes, bars and boutiques surrounded by period buildings. Its uniqueness is accentuated by its proximity to London and its strong influence throughout the Borough. Described as a place where town meets country, it is the perfect place for a business to establish itself and evolve. It has its own businesses association, which works to promote the village as a commercial and visitor destination, as well as ensuring that all its members are represented.
The South Wimbledon Business Area, adjacent to Morden Road and Merantun Way, is home to over 200 businesses. Exciting times lie ahead through proposals to set up a Business Improvement District from July 2017.
