Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council has 24 Councillors representing 8 wards across the town. It is the level of Government closest to residents. Last year, the Council set out its priorities for 2018 and 2019 in its Strategic Plan which you can find further down this page.
As we start to review the Strategic Plan, and set our priorities for 2020 and beyond, we are committed to gathering the views of the people that live and work in the Royal Town.
We ran a survey during October 2018, asking people to mark each priority as high, medium or low. The results of this survey can be found below.
Town Council’s Approach to Community Development
At the Full Council meeting on 23th October 2018, we considered the key findings of the review of Community Engagement and Development to support Health and Wellbeing of Sutton Coldfield residents.
The medium and long-term actions and responsibilities to Community development were agreed at this meeting, as outlined in the report below.
The Sutton Coldfield Town Council Strategic Plan was published in September 2017.
Following intensive consultation and collaboration the document sets out the key actions the Town Council will undertake over 2017-19.
The key actions are directly linked to the Town Council’s overall corporate priorities. These priorities are to:
- represent Sutton Coldfield’s interests on key strategic issues facing the town
- work with the local community and partners to ensure that the town becomes a more vibrant, better served, more prosperous, cleaner, greener, safer and inclusive place in which to live, work and enjoy life
- enhance the organisational management, capacity and efficiency of the Town Council in addressing the needs of the community
The Strategic Plan 2017 provides a clear direction to guide the Town Council in its crucial formative years to achieve the initial corporate priorities and details a comprehensive framework to shape future activities and actions.
