Wimbledon Park - Cllr Ed Gretton

Shadow Cabinet Member for Business & Finance

Ed lives with his wife and young family in the Wimbledon Park Grid. His youngest son is six years old and so our ward’s fabulous heritage park - Wimbledon Park – is a top priority for Ed. ‘The Park has a wonderful heritage and superb sports and leisure options - we have to protect and preserve it, and keep the Park looking great for everybody to use.’

Ed is also working to deliver better school access and outcomes in education for Merton, and is also campaigning to use the opportunities from the redevelopment of Plough Lane to invest in the North end of Haydons Road and its vicinity.

Ed works as a lawyer. He also enjoys working with the local ward police and chairs Wimbledon Park’s Safer Neighbourhood Panel, as well as running his local Neighbourhood Watch in The Grid. He is looking forward to using his professional experience to address the issues that residents are most concerned about.
