GUIDANCE FOR MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ATTENDING FORMAL COUNCIL MEETINGS
Thornbury Town Council is committed to community engagement and therefore warmly
invites members of the public to contribute to this meeting under the listed agenda item
Thornbury Town Council Standing Orders allow for 20 minutes to be allocated under the
‘Public Participation’, with up to 10 minutes per individual. These timings may be altered
at the discretion of the Chairman, who may, for example, further limit the time allocated
to individuals to allow for more members of the public an opportunity to speak.
If you wish to address the meeting under Public Participation:
• Raise your hand when requesting to speak and stand when speaking*
• Direct your comments to the chairman of the meeting.
One person is permitted to speak at a time. If more than one person wants to speak, the
chairman of the meeting shall direct the order of speaking.
During the Public Participation section of the meeting: members of the public should
note that the council is only allowed to take decisions on topics that are publicised on the
agenda; items not on the agenda may be carried forward for a response at a later date. A
question shall not require a response at the meeting nor start a debate on the question.
The chairman of the meeting may direct that a written or oral response be given.
After the Public Participation section of the meeting: Members of the public are asked to
respect the fact that this is a meeting to conduct council business and interruptions during
the remainder of the meeting are not permitted.
This guidance is based on the Thornbury Town Council Standing Orders. These are the
rules that govern the Town Council.
Thank you for attending this meeting.
