Merton Council is committed to building a vibrant, thriving community that values sustainability, equity and civic pride. We believe in taking bold action to address climate change and create a more resilient future for generations to come.

  • Drive innovation in sustainable transport, overseeing the delivery of projects that promote active travel, reduce congestion, and improve air quality.
  • Champion green infrastructure initiatives, including the expansion of cycling and walking networks, and the enhancement of public spaces to create vibrant, liveable communities.
  • Build strong partnerships with community groups, and other stakeholders to foster a sense of civic pride and engagement in our sustainability efforts.

If you're ready to make a difference and lead change in our communities, we want to hear from you.
