No more than one question per person (or on behalf of a single organisation) can be asked at any one meeting. A maximum of six members of the public can ask questions at any one meeting.

You must send your question in writing and include the following:

  • your name
  • your address
  • the name of the Executive Member you want to answer your question.

Please note, any related statements that are submitted with a question will not be included in the meeting agenda.

A question will be rejected if:

  • It is about a matter for which we have no responsibility or which does not affect the borough.
  • It is defamatory, frivolous or offensive.
  • It is related to a current planning or licensing application.
  • It is substantially the same as a question which has been put at a Full Council meeting in the past six months.
  • It relates to the conduct of an individual member or officer.
  • It requires the disclosure of confidential or exempt information.

Rejected questions will include reasons for rejection.

Questions will normally be asked in the order they were received, but where similar questions are received they will be grouped together.   

Send your question by the above deadlines to Public Question Time, Democratic Services, Civic Offices, Elstree Way, Borehamwood WD6 1WA or email it to democratic.services@hertsmere.gov.uk
