What would you raise to the Town Council?
As long as you live or work in Weston, you may have your say at Town Council meetings, which take place at the Town Hall in the New Council chamber and also Committee meetings of the Council, which usually take place at either Grove House, Blakehay Theatre or Weston Museum.
During this time of COVID our meetings are taking place over Zoom, live broadcast to our Facebook page. We can’t answer comments on Facebook during the live meeting. If you would like to address the council please contact the Town Clerk via this email address firstname.lastname@example.org to be given information on how to do so./span>
Before the commencement of the meeting, the Chairman will invite any members of the public to address the Council under the public participation section. This allows a total of 15 minutes for members of the public to speak, present a petition or ask a question. The time will be split depending on how many people wish to speak, which in some cases isn’t long, so you have to be very clear on your leading point and deliver that first.
All decisions are made by councillors only and members of the public can’t take part in Council or Committee debate nor in voting on issues.
