Raising a question/concern - note: It is not a requirement to give notice of the intention to make use of public speaking provision, however, as a matter of courtesy, it is requested that members of the public provide at least three clear working days notice in writing to the Head of Corporate Services and include the question and any supporting information with that notice. This will provide the opportunity to undertake, where necessary, any background research so as to enable the most informed answer to be given.

Matthew Cunningham

Head of Corporate Services
