Merton Council and key organisations in the borough are asking residents to help shape a new Community Plan to take the borough forward into the next decade.
The Merton Partnership – a multi-agency partnership of local stakeholders, including bodies such as the council, the police and healthcare providers – say the plan will set out a blueprint of the borough’s aspirations for a safe, strong, healthy and vibrant borough.
The partnership is asking for residents’ comments to help it shape a plan that gives local people a clear vision of what they want Merton to be like ten years from the plan’s launch. If you live, work, go to school or are a regular visitor to the borough, the council is keen to hear your views on what you want Merton to be like and what can be done to make it a better place.
Councillor David Williams, Leader of Merton Council and Chairman of the Merton Partnership said: “To ensure we can keep delivering the best services at good value for money we need to know what residents want, so please do get involved and help us build a community plan that works for you.”
A dedicated web page has been launched to gather people’s comments and the partnership is also building on the results of other public consultations and surveys which have taken place such as the annual residents’ survey.
