Every year, Councillors are allocated to different Committees to scrutinize how the Council is run by Officers and the Cabinet, and to develop and recommend new policies. This year I am on the Health Committee with Cllr Richard Hurley, while Richard is also on the Economic, Environmental and Sustainability Committee with Cllr Emma Faramarzi.
What would local residents like the three of us to ask to be included on the work programme for the next 12 months?
Last year the Health Committee considered Children’s Congenital Heart Services, Swindon Sports Strategy, Partnership working on obesity, Stroke Action Plan, Sickness Absence at the Great Western Hospital. Cervical Screening and Car Parking at Great Western Hospital.
The Economic Committee covers a wide range of area of the Council and includes:
- Town Centre RegenerationHousing;
- Transport and Strategic Transport Planning;
- Strategic Planning
- Waste and Recycling;
- Economic and Cultural Development;
- Library Service.
