The Local Committee covers three wards - Carshalton Central and Carshalton South and Clockhouse.
Who sits on the Committee?
The Local Committee Chair and Vice Chair are appointed from the local ward councillors, who all sit on the Local Committee.
A number of community representatives formally nominated also sit on the Local Committee and although they do not have voting rights, they have a very important part to play in reflecting the views of the residents they represent and ensuring that information is shared.
What has the committee been up to recently?
Recent topics discussed at the Local Committee meetings have included presentations on the authority's new Public Health responsibilities, the provision of Fountain Drive Neighbourhood Recycling Centre and updates on local environmental improvement schemes.
Over the past year, the Carshalton and Clockhouse Local Committee has funded a number of projects to help improve the local area, such as the construction of the World War II War Memorial, provision of Christmas lighting around the Ponds and High Street, repairs to paving slabs in Westmead Road.
All these projects were proposed by members of the community and discussed at the committee meetings, gaining support from Councillors and Community Representatives.
