I'm prepared to be shot down here, but just wondering, is there any reason, apart from maybe travelling, that a joint London Prem and Eastern Prem would not work. Play each team in your own Prem twice and once for the teams on the other premier league. That would be a sixteen week season, plus a few cup games etc, would give clubs about a 20 week season. Would they want it, is it do-able.
I think a couple of East clubs could do it - North Herts & Bedford - while the step (at the moment) might be too far for the rest.
Bringing in Medway & maybe another from the South East could be the solution.
This would only work though if Bedford / North Herts / Medway second teams took their current position in their existing league.
Otherwise you strengthen one comp and weaken two!
