Committee details

Woking Joint Committee

Purpose of committee

Woking Joint Committee is a joint committee of Surrey County Council and Woking Borough Council, established on 1 June 2014.  The Committee is responsible for a number of areas previously considered under the former Surrey County Council Local Committee, as well as a number of new areas previously under the remit of Woking Borough Council. 

 

The Joint Committee aims to bring decision making closer to residents by meeting in Woking Borough Council Chamber to discuss and make decisions on issues such as highways, parking, community safety, health and wellbeing and public rights of way.  The Committee is made up of the seven county councillors who represent each of the divisions within the borough plus a cabinet member and a corresponding eight members from Waverley Borough Council.

 

The committee welcomes all residents to attend and listen to 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.  Have a look at other meetings that are held by the borough council in Woking.

 

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 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!
