Asking a question
Residents and business rate payers are invited to put forward questions at council meetings. Your question should relate to a matter for which the council has a responsibility or which affects the borough.
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 dates for future all council meetings can be found on the meeting calendar.
