Sitting on the south-western fringes of the London Borough of Merton, and served well by a frequent train service linking London Waterloo with Chessington South and Epsom, Motspur Park is an undiscovered gem. With building facades rich in mock-tudor charm, a well served library, a populous residential area and development sites in the pipeline this small community is ready to embrace a well considered and thought-through boost.

This area focusses on the parades of shops at the junction of West Barnes Lane and Station Parade. There are currently 28 shop units of which 4 are vacant. The area is in reasonable condition and yet lacks a confident character and local businesses have failed to realise a more coordinated shopping area.

Early analysis by architects 5th Studio as part of the GLAs SAT support has shown that a number of additive improvements could serve the area well in terms of maximising local identity and development opportunities as well as capturing latent community demand.

What we'll deliver:

  • 6 new shopfonts
  • A pop-up library: to house a library service whilst the existing library site is developed
  • Decluttering of street furniture
  • Repair and celebration of local street clock
  • Repair and refurbishment of 7 mock tudor building frontages
  • New village name signage
  • Rationalising of area parking

Why it's a great idea:

It's a great idea because it satisfies the demand for more vibrancy in the high street area and that by doing so we open up opportunities for economic and cultural development.

Steps to get it done:

  • liase with shopkeepers
