Exciting new healthcare premises, along with new premises for MertonVision are proposed in a redevelopment of the Guardian Centre, at the junction of Courtney Road and Clarendon Road, Colliers Wood.  The building will provide modern, purpose built space for the Colliers Wood Surgery and its branch at Lavender Fields.  The new building will also provide new purpose built premises for MertonVision, which is a charity that supports people in Merton who have visual impairment.  The building will replace the existing GP premises at Lavender Fields and 58 High Street, Colliers Wood, both of which are outdated conversions of residential property.  MertonVision’s space will replace its existing facility which is in a converted school building.


The new building will enable the delivery of NHS healthcare services for the 12,000 local patients served by the surgery and for local people who are supported by MertonVision.


The proposals have been developed with the full support of the Partners at Colliers Wood Surgery (including Lavender Fields branch), the Board of Trustees of Merton Vision and NHS South West London Clinical Commissioning Group.  The proposals will be the subject of a planning application that will be made to the London Borough of Merton later in July. 


The purpose of this website is to show the plans and to have your feedback on them.


Please take a look at the proposals on the website and we’d welcome your views, using the Comments section on the website.

The opportunity to comment through this website has concluded. We will now review the feedback alongside comments from the planning authority officers and consultants. Coordinated changes will then be made to the design as considered appropriate. The changes to the design will form the team’s response to matters raised during the pre-application process rather than providing individual responses to various parties.

There will be a further opportunity to comment as part of the formal planning application process held by the London Borough of Merton.
