What We Do

The South Wimbledon Business Area (SWBA) provides a forum for supporting businesses located on the Merton Industrial Park. We work to improve the condition of the estate and to provide on-going support to those located within the business area.

Through the enthusiastic and voluntary efforts of our member company representatives and our part-time, estate co-ordinator, we have managed to secure inward investment to upgrade the overall estate.

This includes the provision of CCTV, disposal of litter, issues arising from fly-tipping, improved footpaths and signage.

As a whole we work closely and on an on-going basis, with the Metropolitan Police force in an attempt to keep on-site crime to a minimum.

Informal SWBA meetings are held at 12.30pm on the first Thursday of every month to discuss current issues and agree any actions which may be required.

The SWBA’s achievements and ways in which it can support local businesses are set out within our website and our supporting social media outlets.

Our membership includes representatives of some of the estate’s and Merton’s most successful companies. It has a committed and enthusiastic Steering Committee. But the SWBA would be strengthened by greater participation.
