Annual Review 2017 published

We published our Annual Review for 2017 at our AGM on 24th April 2018.

This presents highlights of our work during 2017 – it is a good place to find out more about what we do and some of our achievements during the year.

Highlights of 2017 include :

  • Playing our part in the success of achieving a £4.7m Lottery award for The Canons Mitcham, and looking forward to seeing this project through to fruition
  • Working hard to protect our much valued green spaces from fly-parking and unauthorised work on green spaces, including the removal of front gardens
  • Forging working relationships with Merton Council’s contractor for green spaces management, idverde
  • Achieving Grade II listing for the war memorial at Lower Green West
  • Continuing our relationship with SUEZ and working with the company on its planned departure from Mitcham – which will leave its site with planning permission for housing
  • Achieving local listing for a number of Mitcham landmarks
  • Continuing to fight for a resolution to the Burn Bullock
  • Commenting on many planning applications – a large number of which seem opportunistic and without appropriate consideration of their statutory duty to ‘enhance’ the Conservation Area.
  • Organising events such as Mitcham Heritage Day and Community on the Green

…… and much more
