Epsom & Ewell Group of Residents' Associations Councillors

Your RA Borough Council



The Council...

The Council delegates much of its business to the five policy committees - Environment, Leisure, Licensing and Planning Policy, Social and Strategy & Resources.  There are also two regulatory committees - Planning and Licensing Hearing panels - which deal with planning applications and licensing matters.  The Council’s Scrutiny Committee and Standards Committee ensure that both Councillors and Council staff maintain high standards of probity and that decisions are made in a legal, fair and open fashion in accordance with the Council’s rules.



The Committees...

All meetings are held at the Town Hall, Epsom and start at 7.30pm unless otherwise stated.  Meetings may be cancelled or additional meetings arranged as necessary. To view the full year’s calendar of meetings, download Agendas or review Minutes of previous meetings visit www.epsom-ewell.gov.uk
