Public questions at full Council meetings

Members of the public have the right to pose a question to any member of the council's Cabinet (including the Council Leader) at any scheduled full Council meeting.

The question must be about a matter for which we have a responsibility or which affects the district.

The question has to be submitted no later than 12 noon on the Monday of the week preceding a Monday council meeting. If the meeting is on another day the deadline is 12 noon five working days before.

You will get a maximum of one minute to ask a question and the answer shall not exceed three minutes. You will have a maximum of one minute to ask a supplementary question and the answer shall not exceed two minutes. Question time shall not exceed 30 minutes in total.

Please contact Democratic Services for further information and to ask your proposed question.
