We are keen to hear your views on dockless hire bikes now that there are two providers in the borough, and we have seen an increase in dockless bikes in our community.

Are you passionate about pushing for change? We have two exciting opportunities to join our team!

Merton CIL's general enquiries telephone line will now open from 10am to 2pm only.

Accessible toilets in community spaces are crucial to supporting Disabled residents to live independently. The lack of accessible toilets is a recurring topic at Merton CIL’s Access Champions meetings. It is important that we as Disabled people share our views to help improve the provision of public toilets and push to #MakeMertonAccessible.

This council are currently consulting our community on how the provision of public toilets in Merton affects people in their daily lives, especially older people and those with health conditions requiring more frequent visits to the toilet. Please have your say by 3rd April!

We are seeking a passionate and skilled Deaf or Disabled person or person with a long-term health condition to join our AQS accredited Information & Advice service, as a Caseworker.

Merton CIL will be closed from 3pm on Friday 23rd December, and reopens at 9am on Tuesday 3rd January.
