The Council encourages people to engage with the Council through a number of public participation schemes.
Public Question Time
The public can ask a question at a full Council meeting or at most of its Committees.
Arranging to Speak at a Committee Meeting
Only available for either Planning Committee or Licensing Committee. The registration is on a 'first come, first served' basis.
Please email Democratic Services at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 10am the day before the meeting.
Please note this only applies to licence applications and not policy decisions. This does not apply to Licensing Sub-Committee Hearings, which require special arrangements.

Public Petitions Scheme
There is also a public petition scheme, where the public can present their petition at full Council or one of the appropriate Committees.
