Attending Meetings

 

Meetings of the Co-operative Executive are open to the public. **See note on public attendance below.

 

There is an opportunity for members of the public to ask the Co-operative Executive Members questions and to submit petitions under the agenda item ‘Public Questions and Petitions’.

The arrangements for dealing with questions and petitions at meetings of the Co-operative Executive are as follows:-

Following the lifting of restrictions on 19th July 2021, the Council will still operate under Social Distancing Rules, if you wish to ask a question or present a petition at the meeting, you must submit the question/petition in writing at least 2 clear days in advance of the date of the meeting, by email to the following address: committee@sheffield.gov.uk.  This is necessary to facilitate the management of attendance at the meeting and to maintain social distancing.  For meetings held on a Wednesday, questions/petitions will need to be received by 9.00 a.m. on the Monday of that week. You will also be asked to provide a contact email and/or telephone number. (Details of how we will use and keep your information can be found here).

Due to health and safety restrictions in place to ensure current social distancing rules in our meeting rooms, we are unable to guarantee entrance to observers, as priority will be given to registered speakers. To observe the meeting as a member of the public, please click on the ‘view the webcast’ link provided on the meeting page of the website.

The Chair of the meeting has discretion as to how questions and petitions are presented at the meeting and as to whether you are invited to ask your question or present a petition at the meeting or they are read out at the meeting. A response to the question or petition will be given by the appropriate Executive Member or Council officer.  If you are not able to attend the meeting, your question/petition may be referred to the appropriate Executive Member, and an answer/response will be provided to you.

Where a submitted question or petition cannot be answered because time does not allow, or where a Member undertakes to provide a written answer/response, the written answer/response will be provided to you and will be published on the Council website.

Please note that the Chair of the meeting may not accept petitions or questions which relate to:-

(i) matters not being within the responsibility of the Local Authority or which affects the City or its inhabitants;

(ii) judicial or quasi-judicial matters;

(iii) individual planning/licence/grant applications or appeals;

(iv) named officers or Members of the Council;

(v) confidential matters of the type referred to in Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act, 1972; or
