Your rights at Council meetings
Submitting a question at Full Council meetings
You must be a resident or local taxpayer of the borough to submit a question to a Full Council meeting. You will need to submit your question in writing. State your question clearly and include your full contact details (include your home address and telephone number).
Then send your question to the Committee Services team.
All questions must reach us by 12pm, five working days before the Full Council meeting. This is usually the Wednesday before the meeting. Any question received after this time will not be taken. You'll find dates for Full Council meetings in the online meetings calendar.
Please note that questions of a personal nature will not be accepted.
What happens next
The Council will circulate your question and compile responses. Your question and the response will be available in writing at the meeting.
At the meeting, the Mayor will also invite you ask a supplementary question to clarify any points. This is not a chance to make a statement or raise a new question on a different matter.
Once you have asked a question, you cannot submit a similar question for the next three months.
