During February and March 2017, the council held workshops for residents and businesses to get involved in the process of shaping the masterplan. Attendees engaged in a range of interactive tasks to discuss the opportunities and issues facing Wimbledon and the future direction the town centre should take

This will be one of a number of ways the council will be engaging with people in developing the masterplan. The workshops took place on Wednesday 18 January, Monday 20 February and Monday 27 February.

Landowners Forum - 14 September 2015

Merton Council will soon be exploring the development opportunities and economic growth potential of Wimbledon; following on from 2014’s Future Wimbledon Ideas Competition.

In planning for Crossrail 2, there could be significant investment in Wimbledon station, creating one of the largest transport hubs in our city. The knock on opportunity for improvement and development of Wimbledon Town Centre is enormous. We are making plans to maximise the opportunity for economic growth, learning from the successes and challenges of Crossrail1, and engaging early with those who can help be part of that future.

Merton Council and Love Wimbledon BID are hosting a Land-owners forum to explore the ambition that Merton Council, Love Wimbledon BID and key commercial land-owners have for Wimbledon’s future. This is your opportunity to learn about the development uplift that Crossrail1 has brought and therefore the potential opportunities and thinking around Crossrail2. Also hear about the strategic direction for Wimbledon as an employment hub, before we embark on a longer term strategic masterplan.
