Public Participation

Councillors not on Policy and Performance Committee and members of the public can participate during this section of the meeting in the following ways:


·  If you are able to participate live (meet the technical requirements) and wish to be present and speak, you will need to notify Democratic Services 4 working days (Midday Friday 5 March 2021) before the meeting. Technical and etiquette guides will be provided.

·  Alternatively, the public can email a statement to be read out by ‘the spokesperson’.  Emailed statements will need to be received 2 working days (Midday Tuesday 9 March 2021) before the date of the meeting. Democratic Services will confirm receipt of the email and confirm it can be read out.

·  The statement (including questions) will be the equivalent of a maximum of three minutes if read out.  Please therefore restrict your statement to one side of A4 (12 font).  This applies audio/ video recordings also.

·  Alternatively a MP4 file will be sent to Democratic Services 4 working days (Midday Friday 5 March 2021) before the meeting.  This must be accompanied by a written transcript (emailed). In the event that the file does not meet technical requirements the transcript will be read by the spokesperson and shown on the screen.
