Mayor's Announcements

Minutes:

The Mayor made the following announcements.

 

Ted Gates, who was known to many members through his work with the voluntary sector, had sadly passed away. Ted was a massive proponent of user led organisations, and over the years served on a great number of committees and boards to support the development of services within Sutton for disabled people and their families.

 

The Council had launched Sutton 2031, a major consultation into the development and growth of the borough over the next 15 years. The consultation asked residents to help shape a new Local Plan. Until 8 April 2016, local people were being encouraged to give their views online or to attend any of the 22 exhibitions and meetings to discuss the Local Plan.

 

A roadmap for the proposed London Cancer Hub was published last month and generated significant interest in the national media. This had been followed by the release of the London Cancer Hub masterplan which was being consulted on as part of the Sutton 2031 Local Plan consultation.

 

The Mayor announced that new figures had shown Sutton had the third-highest first-preference rate for secondary school places in London. Almost 80 per cent of Sutton families received their first choice of school for their child for September 2016.

 

The Mayor stated that Sutton was fortunate to have a thriving voluntary sector and outstanding community groups. At the end of February the annual community awards had taken place which honoured people for their outstanding contributions to Sutton.
