  • Cabinet
  • Full Council
  • regulatory meetings, where planning and licensing decisions are made

Members of the public can participate in virtual meetings other than Planning Committee meetings and Licensing Hearings in the following ways:

  • Public statements, questions and petitions can be submitted in advance of the meeting, subject to them being received by the Council at least two clear days prior to the meeting

  • Public questions will receive a written response.No supplementary questions will be permitted
  • Public petitions that meet the relevant requirement of the Council's Petitions Scheme will be received by the Chairman of the meeting without debate and sent to the relevant executive member, committee or council officer for a response.
