Top tips for a Colliers Wood Home Buyers Survey


Colliers Wood, aside from having a large, shopping centre, has a mix of medium-sized Victorian, Edwardian and later period terrace houses with many flat conversions.

Wandle Bank has Victorian Cottages and Liberty Avenue has 1930s semi-detached houses. Colliers Wood tower block was voted London's ugliest building in a BBC poll, is gradually being converted into modern, purpose-built flats and shops. Cavendish House has been developed into one, two and three bedroom flats.

Properties built in the vicinity of the River Wandle in Collier's Wood, such as in Merton High Street, are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Some properties in Colliers Wood may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Griffiths Road, Merton, SW19 1SS revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Colliers Wood area are highest around the main roads of the High Street Colliers Wood/A24 and Merton High Street and Christchurch Road, affecting nearby streets such as Colwood Gardens and Fortescue Road.

London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.
