.           Enterprise Merton: a commitment to stimulate enterprise in the borough, reduce red tape to support small businesses, promote employment opportunities and keep council tax down.

.           Healthy Merton: a commitment to enhance the lives of vulnerable, younger and older residents through improving health and social opportunities.

.           Opportunity Merton: a programme to improve education, from nursery level to adult provision, to develop local cultural and leisure offers for all, and to increase participation in local decision making.
