  • Opportunities for further improvements?

3. Services on the streets include

  • Streetsceneissues, currently the responsibility of E&L (incl responding to graffiti, fly-tipping, littering, dog fouling, etc.)
  • Enforcementfunctions around parking, waste, planning, and a range of functions within environmental sustainability
  • Policingissues, currently the responsibility of the SNTs

4. Services perform well in Sutton

  • The INSI data confirms that these are areas of concern to our residents (and the use of INSI itself is innovative)
  • These are all highly visible, borough-wide services
  • Most are proactive
  • Most are highly performing (and some are innovative)
  • There is already some excellent partnership working between the teams, departments, and agencies
