Whilst public participation is not allowed during the meeting, there will be a 15 minute public question session, where members of the public may ask questions, give evidence or make representations regarding any of the business to be transacted at the meeting. If you wish to attend a council meeting to comment on an issue which is not included on the agenda, you may do so by applying to The Clerk in writing before the meeting.
Under the Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014 members of the public may film, record, take photographs or use social networking during Council meetings that are open to the public. Members of the public who do not wish to be filmed during meetings should make this known to the Town Clerk or Chairman of the meeting, prior to the start of the meeting.
Withernsea Town Council requests advance warning from anyone wishing to film, record or take photographs during open meetings so that suitable provision can be made.
