Council's 'Report Back' Session For Southfields This Week

Have your say in front of local councillors

Residents living in Southfields and Furzedown wards will be able to deliver their verdict on a wide range of local services at two public meetings in the next few days.

Two of the latest town hall 'report back' sessions are being held to give local residents the chance to have their say on a wide range of local issues, including street cleaning, parking, policing, public transport and the NHS.

The meetings are designed to ensure that town hall politicians and managers understand local people's priorities for their communities.

The council regularly stages these feedback meetings in each of the borough's 20 electoral wards.

The Southfields ward meeting will take place at 7.30pm on Wednesday January 26th at Sheringdale School in Standen Road, and will be attended by the ward's three locally elected councillors - Lucy Allen, Terry Walsh and Guy Humphries.

The Furzedown meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Tuesday, February 1, at the Mitcham Lane Baptist Church, 230 Mitcham Lane, Tooting, and will be attended by the three local ward councillors Leonie Cooper, John Farebrother and Mark Thomas.

Senior managers from all the main town hall services will also be on hand to answer questions from the audience and address locally identified concerns.

People unable to attend their local meeting on the night can email questions to  A summary of the issues raised by residents will be posted on this section of the council's website after both meetings.
