We were pleased to be invited to meet with the developer of the Kwik Fit site in Mitcham, and to be asked to make specific input to them ahead of their public exhibition. We duly made input and you can read about it here.
We were less enthusiastic when we saw the plans which have now been lodged as a planning application.
As part of the application the developer says it has made changes to its original plans in response to our prior consultation. We can’t see evidence of changes being made as a result of our conversation, and despite repeated requests, the developer has not explained to us which changes have been made.
We have submitted a formal response to the planning application, which looks in detail at the plans for 22 flats and 290 square meters of ground floor commercial space.
Read our comments: Kwik Fit site redevelopment – Sep 15.
The deadline for submitting comments on this application is 23 September. While Merton Council has a good record of accepting comments beyond the official deadline date we urge you to make your thoughts known by that date.
Details on the planning application are here.
You can submit comments online and all the instructions are here.
