Questions & statements at meetings

We the undersigned petition the council to We ask the Council to change its rules to allow residents to raise issues they care about which aren't on the agenda or to ask questions or the Cabinet to ensure our civil leaders are accountable to the public as in other Councils.

Local democracy relies upon hearing the voices and ideas of local residents and our views.

But unlike many Councils up and down the country, Warwickshire County Council doesn't allow residents to come along to Council to have ask questions or raise issues that matter to the public unless it's an item on the agenda already decided by politicians.

This is bad for residents who have important issues to raise, bad for democracy and politicians who need to listen or be accountable, and bad for Warwickshire because we are falling behind others who have for many years allowed residents to raise any issue or ask questions that they care about, in public question times.
