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.

What has the committee been up to recently?
Recent topics discussed at the Local Committee meetings have included Community Action Sutton and what they do within  the community, regular updates from Neighbourhood Services and update information on Sutton Council's new Local Plan.

Over the past year, the Sutton South, Cheam and Belmont Local Committee has funded a number of projects to help improve the local area, including the new flower planter on the embankment land at the corner of Station road in Belmont, palm tree planting scheme at Church Hill/Abbott Road, Henderson Hospital site feasibility study and funding the annual festive lights scheme across the three wards.

All these projects were proposed by members of the community and discussed at the committee meetings, gaining support from Councillors and Community Representatives.
