Speaking at a Council meeting

You are welcome to attend Council meetings and listen to the discussion. You can request to speak at a Council meeting by completing our general enquiries online form.

Asking a question

If you would like to ask a question at a meeting you will need to speak to the Governance Team in advance or upon arrival at the meeting.

The Governance and Democracy Case Manager will take the details of your question and the Chairman will then invite you to speak when at the meeting.

Guidelines to follow

You can ask questions at the beginning of the meeting but speaking is limited to three minutes. You can only speak to the Committee once. If there are a group of people attending to speak about a particular item then a representative should be chosen to speak on behalf of the group.
