There are six Local Committees in Sutton.

What the Local Committee does
The committees aim to
- give communities a bigger say over decisions affecting them
- be more responsive to residents and allow you to influence local services
- help organisations such as the police, health, and the Council to work together at a local level
- agree Local Funding
Each committee meets up to four times a year to discuss local issues. The meetings follow an agenda of items of local interest and decisions for the area.
The ward Councillors at the Local Committee meetings vote to make the final decisions. Their decisions are shaped by debate with residents and discussions with Community Representatives. Find out about becoming a Community Representative.
