Public Question Time

Ask a public question

If you live or work in the Parish of Credenhill you can ask a question at any public meetings of the council.

You may ask a question either in person at the meeting, in writing (either email or by letter) or by telephone.

When you ask a question please make sure to include your full name and address. This will be used to verify that you live or work in Credenhill. Please be aware that your name and a general location, for example the name of the street where you live or work, will be included in the minutes of the meeting.

Copies of minutes will be published on the council’s website.. If you are unable to attend the meeting in person you may still submit a question and a written answer will be sent to you.

If you are present at the meeting the chair may, at their discretion, invite you to put a supplementary question (s) to the council. A member of the public may speak for up to 5 minutes or longer at the discretion of the chair.

There are some restrictions on what questions can be asked. The clerk or chair are authorised to reject a question if:

  • It is longer than 5 minutes
  • It is not about a matter for which the parish council has a responsibility or about an item on the agenda
  • It is defamatory, frivolous or offensive
  • It is substantially the same as or similar to a question which has been put at a meeting of Council in the past six months
  • It requires the disclosure of confidential or exempt information or relates to an identifiable individual
  • It is from a council employee and the question is connected to their employment or

You can see questions and answers which we publish as part of the  minutes of the meeting.
