There is much for Sutton to be proud of both as a council and as a borough. This includes high levels of resident satisfaction, the addressing of the authority’s financial challenges to date, the involvement and engagement of residents in key issues facing the borough and the enthusiastic and motivated staff that the authority has. Looking ahead, there are plans for the delivery of new homes and new schools and the London Cancer Hub is being developed, whilst the council is also seen as a driving force within the South London Partnership of five outer south west London boroughs focused on strategic growth, regeneration and investment.
All of this demonstrates a good track record and an authority that is ambitious and wants things to get even better. The Council recently set out it’s vision for the future of Sutton in it’s corporate plan - Ambitious for Sutton. This strategic plan will shape the outcomes we achieve, the services we provide, and the impact we have on residents, to make Sutton a great place to live, work and raise a family
