Statement from the Mayor
The Council meeting this evening will be open to the public to attend and we welcome anybody who wants to watch the proceedings. The Council meeting, is a meeting of all 54 Councillors elected to represent the borough. Council meetings are an opportunity to observe Councillors answering questions submitted in advance from members of the public and other Councillors and debating issues. As we want to give residents a chance to hear what is being discussed, the meeting will be recorded and the audio recording will be available on our website after the meeting.
Members of the public who have submitted a public question, which has been acknowledged and accepted will have the opportunity to speak at the meeting. Whilst we welcome attendance at the meeting other than pre-submitted and approved questions there are no further opportunities for public involvement at the meeting.
It is important to highlight no decisions will be made at the meeting on Monday in relation to the parking strategy. However it is likely the issue will be discussed during questions.
Any decisions regarding the parking strategy will only be made once everybody has had a chance to be involved in the ongoing consultation process.
There is limited space and 120 tickets will be made available on a first come, first served basis. Tickets will be available in the reception of Overton Grange from 6.15pm.
Councillor Steve Cook (Mayor of the London Borough of Sutton)
