  • Whether you are for or against the recommendation in the agenda

Members of the public who pre-register will be asked to show photo ID upon entry to verify the pre-registration application.

What happens after I submit the form?

Your request will then be added to a list that is shown to the Chairperson on the night of the meeting.

The following rules apply when addressing a Council or Committee meeting:
