Looking to Renovation or Extend Your Morden Home
A pleasant, multicultural district of south London, Morden has an abundance of green spaces – which is not surprising given its history. People have lived here since the Iron Age, and Roman objects have been found in the area, but it was mainly rural and agricultural until the underground station opened in 1926 – after which it developed rapidly into a residential area.
Among its green spaces are Morden Hall Park, a 120-acre National Trust park which the River Wandle runs through, and Morden Park, a council-run open space with a cricket pitch and a pitch and putt golf course. The district is also home to the Baitul Futuh Mosque, the largest mosque in western Europe – built by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, it can accommodate up to 10,000 worshippers – and the Grade I listed St Lawrence's Church, which dates from the 1630s.
The area is served by Morden Tube station, which is on the Northern line, Morden South railway station and Morden Road tram stop.

Planning applications in Morden
Morden is part of the London Borough of Merton, so you will usually need to apply to Merton Council if you want to alter or extend your home or build a new home. The charges for this are set by the government:
£206 for an extension
£462 for a new home, or a conversion of another type of building into a home (although nowadays some conversions don’t need planning permission).
The council can give you advice on your application before you submit it to give it a better chance of success. For ordinary householder applications, the council charges £990 for written advice and a meeting if necessary, then £528 for a subsequent meeting with a written follow-up. Fortunately, there's a much cheaper option: a 15-minute phonecall for £99.
