West Area Committee

The West Area is one of five area committees operating across the borough.

Each is committed to providing clear, accountable, community leadership and tackling the unique challenges and needs of their area. The committee monitors and reviews services delivered by the Council and other agencies in that area.

 

An area committee is made up of Councillors and members of the public with extensive knowledge of the area co-opted onto the committee. The current Chair of the West Area Committee is Councillor Paul Jabbal.Full membership can be found below.

The meetings allow for local consultation and discussion and are an opportunity for members of the public to raise issues of concern during the open forum.

The area committees are crucial in shaping the local area to meet the needs and aspirations of their residents, providing a forum for local decision-making on a wide range of matters.

Meetings are open to the public and details of the meetings are available from the link above and are held in Feltham Library.
