Tell us how we can improve local services

Merton Council is calling on all residents to help it understand how to improve services by suggesting issues as topics for review by the council’s scrutiny panels.

Each year Merton’s scrutiny panels ask local residents to come forward with ideas on issues affecting them or their local area in order to see how the council and other public services might be able to make improvements or help.

In the past the scrutiny panel have looked at issues from quality of care in nursing homes, to the impact of the recession, to parks and education.

If you have an issue you want the council to look in to please use the website, phone or email the scrutiny team within the next few weeks on: call 020 8545 3864 or email
