Asking a Question at Council meetings - Updated for remote meetings held during Coronavirus situation

At Council meetings, time is given over for public question time. Any member of the public may ask a question of an Executive Member, as long as it relates to the work of the District Council. During the Coronavirus situation, meetings of Council are being held as virtual meetings by video conference. Public questions can be submitted in advance, as recorded files.

To ask a question, either a recorded file (audio only, or audio and video), or a written question, must be emailed to by noon, two working days before the day of the meeting.

Your email should also give your name and address and should name the Member the question is directed at. If sending in a recorded file, you would be asked to send in a written version as a back up, which would be read out on your behalf, in the event of a technical problem with playing your file. You can view the livestream of the meeting on the East Herts Council YouTube channel at this link:
