The Town Council encourages public participation at its meetings. We also welcome speakers who wish to use Welsh as a medium through which to communicate. To ensure that everyone gets an opportunity to talk, we have introduced guidance on how you can best have your say and make the most of your time when you speak. As the public section of the agenda must be restricted to allow other business the public participation section is restricted to ten minutes. Should there be several members of the public all wishing to speak, each speaker will be required to keep their “speeches” to a three minute maximum. This is to ensure everyone gets a fair share of the available time, or if there is only one speaker you will be able to speak for up to ten minutes. Please read the guidance below to aid the smooth running of meetings.
Press and Media and recognises its relationship with the Press helps communication with residents. The Council seeks to be as transparent as possible, cooperating at all times with the Press and using the opportunities of the Media to publicise events being organised. The Press are permitted to attend all meetings of the Council and its committees, unless excluded under the Public Bodies Admission to Meetings Act 1960. They are not, however, invited to attend informal Council meetings which are fact finding sessions only and are not scheduled official Council meetings.
