LOCAL AREA COUNCIL BUSINESS

PUBLIC QUESTION TIME 

 

To reply to any questions received from members of the public which have been submitted in writing in advance of the meeting.  Questions can be asked about issues for which the Council has a responsibility.  (Public question times take place on a bimonthly basis at Local Area Council meetings: in January, March, May, July, September and November each year.) 

 

As agreed by the County Council in February 2012, the management of local public question times is at the discretion of the Chair of the committee. 

 

Please note however that a question may possibly be rejected if it requires the disclosure of any categories of confidential or exempt information, namely information: 

 

  1. relating to any individual; 
  1. which is likely to reveal the identity of an individual; 
  1. relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person; 
  1. relating to any labour relations matters/negotiations; 
  1. restricted to legal proceedings; 
  1. about enforcement/enacting legal orders; 
  1. relating to the prevention, investigation of prosecution of crime. 

 

And/or: 

 

  • is defamatory, frivolous or offensive; 
  • it is substantially the same as a question which has been put at a meeting of this or another County Council committee in the past six months; 
  • the request repeats an identical or very similar question from the same person; 
  • the cost of providing an answer is disproportionate; 
  • it is being separately addressed through the Council's complaints process; 
  • it is not about a matter for which the Council has a responsibility or which affects the county; 
  • it relates to planning, licensing and/or other regulatory applications; 
  • it is a question that town/parish councils would normally be expected to raise through other channels. 

 

If the Chair is of the opinion that a question is one which, for whatever reason, cannot properly be asked in an area meeting, he/she will disallow it and inform the resident of his/her decision. 

 

Copies of any written answers (without individuals' personal contact details) will be provided for members after the meeting and also be publicly available. 

 

Democratic Services will confirm the status of the progress on any previously requested written answers and follow up any related actions requested by the Local Area Council.
