Scrutiny is one of the ways councillors can provide constructive challenge and amplify the voice of local residents.
The Overview and Scrutiny Committee and its three Scrutiny Panels consider the work of the council and the wider public sector, with a clear focus on improving public services. Learn more about these Panels here.
If you are concerned about an issue affecting a number of people that is not being addressed or a service that is not delivering its outcomes, then tell us about it.
Some of the topics discussed last year included knife carrying by young people in Hounslow, fly-tipping, contract management, homelessness and the new Met Police model.
