Notes / History This picture shows the final council meeting held at Morden Hall.

In 1965 the former boroughs of Mitcham and Wimbledon were amalgamated with the Urban District of Merton and Morden, to form the London Borough of Merton.

For the first part of its history the new authority used Wimbledon Town Hall ( now Centre Court Shopping Centre ) for its headquarters.

In 1985 the council moved into Morden offices at the former Crown House tower block. The current council chamber was added in 1990 as part of a major extension to the building.
