Local Committees are meetings of ward Councillors and Community Representatives of a particular area. 

They are open to the public to anyone who lives, works, or studies in the borough.

There are six Local Committees in Sutton. 

You can subscribe online to your Local Committee’s mailing list.

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.
