Asking a question at a council meeting

Residents and business rate payers are invited to put forward questions at full council. Your question should be no longer than 50 words and must relate to a matter for which the council has a responsibility or which affects the borough. Your question will not be accepted if it is substantially the same as a question which has been put to a meeting of council in the past six months.

You must provide your name and address when submitting your question.

You are welcome to attend the meeting at which your question is put and to ask an oral supplementary question seeking clarification on any point made in the original answer.

The full rules on asking a question at council are set out in the council's constitution (Part 4A, section 11).

The dates for future full council meetings are listed on the calendar

The deadline for submitting a question to a Council meeting is 5pm, 8 working days before the meeting.

For example if the meeting is on a Wednesday then the deadline is Friday 2 weeks before.

If you would like to submit a question, please send it us by email, post or telephone using the contact details below.
