#NewMalden iconic Fountain Roundabout "to be replaced by Go Cycle route."

Residents at a meeting about the proposed "Go Cycle" scheme were up in arms last night after Kingston council confirmed it is to move the Fountain Roundabout to make way for the scheme.

The £30 million Go Cycle programme includes 10 development schemes. One project, Portsmouth Road, is under construction.

The Fountain Roundabout will now be transformed into a crossroads junction.

But residents have asked us why every household was not consulted on the plans, and why it seems the consultation could only be accessed online; the council has verified some residents were contacted via letter, but only those in the vicinity of the development.

One 92 year old resident, who wished not to be named, told us she has no access to the internet, so was effectively "barred from the consultation."

In a press release, the council said; “We want to encourage more people to cycle and walk by providing better and safer cycle links, footways and crossings throughout the borough. Go Cycle will bring benefits to all residents in the borough, improving public spaces for everyone's enjoyment. Moving around the borough will be easier thanks to better infrastructure and access by foot and bike to community facilities, workplaces, shops, schools, attractions and open spaces in key locations will be improved.”

A number of residents claim they only found out about last night's meeting via the Malden and Coombe Heritage group.

This resident, John Creasey, says his concerns were ignored.



James Giles is Editor in Chief at Coombe Monthly, a community service. He explains to Jackie's Lucy Mayer why he is opposed to the plans.

#BackHeathrow steps up the support for third runway



Heathrow expansion supporters visited Downing Street today to deliver thousands of letters to Prime Minister Theresa May, telling her that “building a new runway at the UK’s largest port will help secure a bright future for local communities and for our country”.

Earlier in the day, residents who live near the airport in West London, East Berkshire and North Surrey gathered in Parliament Square for a photograph dressed in hard hats and hi-viz jackets to demonstrate their enthusiasm for Heathrow’s new runway.

The supporters, including some from Theresa May’s own Maidenhead constituency, then walked to No.10 Downing Street to deliver the letters to the Prime Minister, accompanied by Lord Soley, former Hammersmith MP.

More than 30,000 residents living near Heathrow have sent messages to the Prime Minister urging her to back expansion.

But leading members of May’s cabinet are also opponents of a third runway.

Boris Johnson, the new Foreign Secretary, has famously said he would lie in front of the bulldozers to stop expansion.

Education Secretary Justine Greening has been a long-standing opponent, and the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, has backed Gatwick.

And Chris Grayling, now in charge at transport, voted against Labour’s proposals in 2009.

A decision is due imminently.

Boundary changes; could the Putney seat be lost?

She won the position of Education Secretary during the cabinet reshuffle – but Putney’s MP could be about to lose her constituency seat completely.

Proposed changes to parliamentary boundaries were announced at midnight, meaning Justine Greening’s seat could disappear.

The idea is to cut the number of MPs by 50, to 600, to save money and give equal weight to each area.

Richmond Park was one of the seats thought to be under threat of going, with voters dispersed to Merton and Kingston, but it has not appeared on the list.

The Tube came to #Morden this day 90 years ago



It became an extension to the Northern Line on this day in 1926.

A steam traction engine was used to haul the heavy tube carriages between the holding area and the station. The Morden Underground Station can be seen in the background.



The station was one of the first modernist designs produced for the London Underground by Charles Holden.

Its opening in 1926 contributed to the rapid development of "new suburbs" in what used to be rural Surrey.

The population of the parish increased nine-fold in the decade 1921–1931.

Liberal Democrats are calling on Merton's elected representatives to reassure EU nationals living in Britain.

A petition will be presented to both local MPs and Merton Council, calling on them to ensure the Government protects the rights of EU nationals post Brexit.

Created by the Lib-Dems- it currently has over 600 signatures and is part of a nationwide campaign by the party.

Lib Dem councillor Mary-Jane Jeanes who will lodge the petition with Merton Council on Wednesday, said:

“During the referendum campaign, many people living and working in the borough told us they were worried about their rights in the UK if we voted to leave the EU. We want the UK Government to reassure them that their rights will be maintained. Nearly three months after the vote, and people still don't know. This uncertainty is damaging business and causing unnecessary worry. We urge our MPs and Merton Council to lobby Government and ensure the rights of EU citizens living in Britain will not be eroded. It's the human thing to do.”

Wimbledon Lib Dem spokesman Carl Quilliam added:

“There's now a pressing need to reassure EU citizens who are living and working here in the UK. Quite simply, the lives of millions of people should not be used as bargaining chips. And with a rise in hate crime across London, it is more important than ever that the Government acts to show EU citizens in our community that they are welcome and will be protected by the full force of the law.”

Third runway at Heathrow could be decided by a free vote

A former government minister has poured scorn on a free vote over the future of Heathrow Airport.

Channel Four News interviewed Grant Schapps after it was revealed that the thorny issue could be left to a vote where the cabinet votes individually over a third runway for Heathrow or Gatwick.

It was revealed when a document carried on the tube by a civil servant was filmed by another passenger.

It discussed the "potential waiving of collective responsibility".

The government had announced that a third runway should be built at Heathrow.

However the Department for Transport said further investigation into noise, pollution and compensation would be carried out.

But Mr Schapps said Britain should show it’s open for business.
