Committee details

Surrey Heath Local Committee

Purpose of committee

Surrey Heath is a diverse borough, covering the town of Camberley, rural villages and the unique rural Heathland. Surrey County Council's Local Committee in Surrey Heath see this diversity as enormously exciting, giving rise to lots of opportunities and challenges. 


The Local Committee aims to bring decision making closer to residents by meeting in Surrey Heath to discuss and make decisions on issues such as public rights of way and libraries. The Committee is made up of the six county councillors who represent each of the divisions within the borough and six members from Surrey Heath Borough Council.


The committee welcomes all residents to attend and listen to the discussion, and you can 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 Surrey Heath.


There is also the opportunity to participate by asking questions at the committee on local topics or by 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 your question to be responded to. 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!
