Speaking and presenting at meetings

Here's how to get involved in our public meetings.

You are welcome to come along

There is a public seating area at meetings where you can observe the meeting, and many meetings have a public forum where you can speak if you wish.

Each Council meeting has a formal agenda of items for discussion that is completed one week before the Council meeting takes place. This agenda is made public two working days prior to the meeting. 

The agenda includes any supporting reports and information required to assist Councillors during the meeting.

Meetings are organised and run by the regulations set in statute. These include the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987, and the Local Government Act 2002.
