Public speaking at Council meetings
Members of the press and residents of Thanet can ask questions at ordinary meetings of Council; the exceptions being the annual budget-setting meeting (usually at the beginning of February) and extraordinary meetings.
A question must be submitted by the person who will ask the question at the Council meeting and not someone else on the questioner’s behalf.
How soon before the meeting should I submit my question?
The Committee Services Manager must receive your question at least five full working days before the date of the meeting. Saturdays and Sundays and bank holidays do not count as ‘working days’.
