Date Valley School continues to be a challenging neighbour for Cricket Green.
There are continuing problems over parking and traffic in breach of the school’s travel plan and questions over its use of the green space adjacent to the cricket pitch.
It has also been in breach of planning controls by erecting a shelter without planning permission that Merton Council has said needs to be removed because of its impact on the Conservation Area.
A new shelter has been proposed which is significantly lower than the current one.
We believe it will still have a negative impact but recognise the school’s need and have not objected. We are asking Merton Council to ensure that it is an appropriate colour which will blend with its surroundings in this sensitive location.
