Mitcham Catholic Church has brought forward new plans for a large parish hall on open land to the rear.
A single storey building over 4m high is proposed and it would take up a significant area of green space and involve the loss of some trees.
Nevertheless, we have supported the development subject to tight controls over noise, light pollution and design detail. We have also asked Merton Council to ensure replacement trees are provided and asked that the new hall be available to everyone in the Mitcham community.
The church’s “Building for the Lord” appeal has already raised over £100k for the new building.
