At the heart of Merton lies Morden, home of Merton Council’s Civic Centre.
With its excellent transport links Morden is situated at the end Northern Line and connects the town to Central London. There are also two tram stops nearby and 12 bus routes that pass through the town centre. It is also well linked to major road networks including the A24, originally a Roman road from London to Chichester.
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.
In 2003 the Baitul Futuh mosque opened its doors and remains the largest mosque in western Europe. With the National Trust just down the road in the delightful and popular 125 acre Morden Hall Park, run by the National Trust, and located on the banks of the River Wandle, and offering a host of events throughout the year, Morden is becoming a destination of choice.
Following a public consultation last year to help Merton Council understand more about the aspirations of the local community for the future of Morden Town Centre, the council has been working with Transport for London to prepare for a procurement exercise to select a development partner to help us deliver the regeneration. Insights gathered from the consultation will inform the key priorities for the preferred development partner.
Their next step is to discuss the proposed approach to procuring a development partner at the Council’s Cabinet meeting on 11 November 2019. Further details of this meeting and the report being considered can be found here.
