Wallington town centre will get a £2 million facelift as a result of work that I have been doing with Transport for London (TfL), who will pay for the scheme.

Improvements will begin in the summer 2010 and a major consultation with local residents will start this summer to find out exactly what you would like to see happen to the town centre.

I have been working with TfL for more than eighteen months to pull this project off and I’m delighted that we are now sure of the money. But we haven’t finalised exactly what the work will include and Jayne, Richard and I want to know what you want us to do to make Wallington a nicer place.

Work will start in Woodcote Road and link to the station access improvements that the council has already promised to pay for. But we can do a lot more too. So of the ideas that we have already include widening the footpaths and installing new paving, new cycle parking, getting rid of a lot of the clutter in the street and providing new street furniture and better bus stops… but we really want to know what you think.

If you have any ideas, please leave me a message here or drop me an email to: abetterwallington@yahoo.co.uk
