Our priorities

Surrey County Council's aim is to make a positive difference to the lives of our residents every day. We do this by providing a wide range of good quality services and supporting initiatives that benefit the county.

But we also need to keep driving costs down, as there is more demand on our services while government grants have been cut by £48m in the past three years.
