Speak at a council meeting

Full Council meetings

Full Council is held several times a year to decide our budget and policies. They usually also include formal ceremonies. See upcoming Full Council meetings

To request to speak, you'll need to submit a petition or question to Democratic Services, supported by at least 15 signatures. 

The following applies at all Full Council meetings:

  • the Lord Mayor may decide the order of speakers
  • you cannot speak for more than three minutes unless you have permission from us, and
  • there will be no debate on any petitions or questions put forward, unless the Chair of an appropriate committee is given permission to respond by The Lord Mayor.
