Surrey County Council’s Joint Committee in
Guildford aims to bring decision making closer to residents by
meeting in Guildford Borough Council Chamber (Guildford)
to discuss and make decisions on
issues such as public rights of way and libraries. The
Committee is made up of the 10 county councillors who represent
each of the divisions within the borough and 10 members from
Guildford Borough Council.
The committee welcomes all
residents to attend and listen the discussion, and you can view
webcasts of the previous meetings, and read the minutes of the
decisions made, and read the reports that were considered. You can
also have a look at the meetings that
are held by the borough council in Guildford.
There is also the opportunity to
participate by asking questions at the committee on local topics or
submitting a petition. Before you consider whether to engage
through this route, please
investigate whether your query or concern could be addressed
through either one of the Council’s online
reporting tools or through
contacting one of the Council’s dedicated service
response teams as this will
enable you to get a response within 28 days and you will not have
to wait until the next appropriate meeting for the response to your
question. Committee Managers will happily give you guidance about
whether this is the most effective way to get an answer to your
concern or signpost you to an alternative approach.
There is always lots going on, and
you can have your say through surveys and consultations or local
conversations – these might be about local issues, or bigger
Surrey-wide policies. Have a look and have your say!
