Members of the public are permitted to ask one question of up to 50 words at each meeting of the Council. Please let us know whether you will attend the meeting to put your question in person, or whether you require a written reply. All questions and replies are published in the minutes of the meeting. 


In accordance with the Council’s Constitution, questions from the public must have been received in writing by 5pm, 10 working days before the date of the meeting. The deadlines for the next meetings are:
