Help pick the scrutiny topics for 2019/20

Help pick the scrutiny topics for 2019/20

March 1, 2019

Residents are being asked to suggest topics for councillors to look into in the coming year. Ealing Council’s scrutiny panels will examine how local services are performing.

In early May, a programme for these scrutiny panels will be agreed for the year 2019/20 and anyone who lives or works in the borough is urged to submit ideas for them by Tuesday, 23 April.

Scrutiny panels seek to improve services for the local community by examining decisions of the council’s cabinet and the performance of council departments. They also look into the work of health bodies, contractors and external agencies that provide services within the borough.

Topics suggested must affect a group or community of people (not issues that only affect one person or household) and not have been considered by a scrutiny panel during the last 12 months.

You can see what topics the scrutiny panels looked into last year in this article.

Send in your ideas

Ideas for topics should be emailed to or sent to Scrutiny Unit, Perceval House, 14-16 Uxbridge Road, Ealing, W5 2HL. You can also ring 020 8825 7497 to submit your scrutiny topic.
