Speak at a council meeting

Speak at Full Council

Full Council is the governing body of the council and decides the budget and policy framework.

Each year the annual meeting of the Full Council also adopts the constitution of the council, the terms of reference for each committee and appoints councillors and substitutes for each committee.

Ask to speak at Full Council

If the correct notification is given a petition or question, supported by 15 people or more, can be presented to a meeting of Full Council by a member of the public. They will have up to three minutes to speak at the meeting.

You must register to speak at Full Council by 12:30pm the working day before the meeting and tell us the wording of the question or petition. You can register by emailing democracy@canterbury.gov.uk or calling 01227 862009

We can only allow one petition per meeting seeking the same outcome. We also cannot accept a petition that is the same as one received in the past six months.
