Public and Members Participation Times - Ordinary Meeting

The aim of this process is to give registered voters an opportunity to make comments on planning applications on the Planning Committee Meeting Agenda.

Meetings of the Parish Council are not public meetings but members of the public have a statutory right to attend meetings of the council as observers.

They have no legal right to speak unless the Parish Council Chairman authorises them to do so.

However, as part of its community engagement, Edwinstowe Parish Council sets out a time for public participation during its meetings when members of the public are invited to speak. This is in line with guidance as published on our website.

What You Can't Ask
The Chair may reject a question if it:

  • Is not about a matter that Edwinstowe Parish Council is responsible for or does not affect the parish.
  • Is defamatory, frivolous or offensive.
  • Is substantially the same question which has been put at a meeting of the council in the past 6 months.
  • Concerns confidential or exempt information.

Addressing The Council
Registered voters may present a petition or question which is relevant to matters that the Parish Council is responsible for or which affects Edwinstowe Parish.

Procedure on The Day of The Meeting

IF YOU ARE MAKING A COMMENT

  1. When it is time to make your comment, the Chair will invite you to speak. There is a time limit of one minute for each registered voter to make a comment.
  2. Questions can be received in writing before the meeting if an answer is required.
  3. Comments can be included in the papers distributed to committee members if received 5 clear days before the meeting.
  4. Unless the Chair decides otherwise, no discussion shall take place on any comment.
  5. Comments will not be received by the Council which are in furtherance of a person’s individual circumstances or which are about a matter where there is a right of appeal to the courts, a tribunal or government minister.
  6. Comments, with the agreement of members present, will be added to the planning application where appropriate.

Public Participation Time at council meetings will not exceed 15 minutes in duration.

Adopted on 12th January 2017 under minute reference 16/115(viii)

Public Participation at Parish Council Meetings

Meetings of the Parish Council are not public meetings but members of the public have a statutory right to attend meetings of the council as observers.

They have no legal right to speak unless the Parish Council Chairman authorises them to do so.

However, as part of its community engagement, Edwinstowe Parish Council sets out a time for public participation during its meetings when members of the public are invited to speak. This is in line with guidance as published on our website.

Members of the public should not be involved in the decision-making of the Council. The Council should not make any instant decisions at the behest of members of the public on items that are not included in the agenda. As a matter of best practice the public forum will be kept separate from the debate of the councillors.

If matters raised are not on the agenda for the meeting these can be used to form part of the agenda for a future meeting at the discretion of the Council.

Members of the public are welcome to stay for the Council meeting after the public session as observers, but will not be able to join in the discussion unless invited to do so by the Chairman.

Members of the public may be excluded by a resolution of the meeting for specific items which need to be discussed in confidence (e.g. staffing matters, tenders for contracts, some legal issues).

Rules

  • This session will be limited to a maximum time of 15 minutes.
  • The time for each member of the public to speak is limited to 1 minute.
  • If more than one member of the public wishes to make the same point then they should nominate one person to speak on their behalf. This will avoid duplication and make the best use of the public participation period.
  • Written statements must be received by the Clerk at least 5 days prior to the meeting.
  • Any member of the Council, who has declared a disclosable pecuniary interest on an item to be discussed, will be allowed the same rights and time as a member of the public for this session. This member will be required to leave the room before the Council considers the matter in which they have declared a disclosable pecuniary interest.
  • The Public Forum is an opportunity for members of the public to
    • (a) make representations
    • (b) answer questions or
    • (c) give evidence relating to the business to be transacted.
  • The Chairman has the right to say that any question or statement is inappropriate and will not be accepted.
  • Neither Councillors nor the Clerk should be put under pressure to respond immediately to comments made under public participation. Members of the public do not have a right to force items onto the council agenda nor to insist on how matters are recorded in the minutes.
  • A question raised by a member of the public during a public speaking session shall not require a response and there should be no debate or discussion between the Council and the public.
  • A brief record of topics raised at public participation will be included in the minutes of that meeting. But libellous, offensive and discriminatory comments will not be minuted.
  • If the issue is on the agenda then it will be discussed under the appropriate item. Members of the public are therefore requested to leave their contact details with the Clerk before leaving the Council meeting if they wish to receive a reply to their query.
