Countryside scales down its £60m historic Merton plan

  • Comment

Countryside Properties has been forced to rethink plans for a £60 million residential and leisure development at historic Merton Abbey Mills after locals objected to the scale and location of the brownfield development.

Revised plans have been submitted to the London Borough of Merton, with the number of new houses slashed from 327 to 287, the height of residential blocks cut by one storey and the development shunted further away from existing homes. Extra car parking is also being provided along with a leisure centre, heritage centre, and a network of cycleways.

The bulk of the scheme is designed by Paul Johnson Architects with detailed planning provided by FSP Architects. Countryside expects the plans to reach committee stage by July.
