Elmbridge Borough Council would like to hear from residents, businesses and community and voluntary organisations to help them agree the Overview and Scrutiny work programme for the forthcoming year.
Overview and Scrutiny has an important role in influencing and contributing to the development of the council’s policies and services. It can also scrutinise decisions that have been taken and the way that current policies work. It does not examine individual problems or complaints but focuses instead on strategic issues and policies. In fact, this role is not confined to the work of Elmbridge Borough Council but extends to anything that affects what it is like to live and work in the Borough.
If you would like to propose a topic for the Overview and Scrutiny Committee to consider there is a form on the Council's Overview and Scrutiny webpage. Alternatively, you can email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to: Overview and Scrutiny, Elmbridge Borough Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey KT10 9SD.
Suggestions can be made by both individuals and organisations and must be received by Tuesday 28 May 2019.
The Overview and Scrutiny Committee will then discuss your suggestions for possible inclusion in the work programme which will be agreed at its meeting on 13 June 2019, at 7pm. The Overview and Scrutiny Committee meetings are held in public and you are welcome to attend. Overview and Scrutiny Committee meetings are webcast live, and accessible from our website.
Further information is available on the Elmbridge Borough Council Overview and Scrutiny webpage along with the Overview and Scrutiny Annual Report for 2018/19 to give a flavour of the types of issues and topics that have recently been considered.
By seeking your views and then acting on the results, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee can work towards ensuring the decisions made in Elmbridge better reflect your needs and aspirations.
