2. If you want to present a Petition on any local issue, establish a Deputation of 10 people to speak on an agenda item, speak on a planning application that impacts on you or wish to ask an oral or written question this link provides initial information. We can advise in more detail as to what exactly works best here.
3. If you want to submit a Freedom of Information (FOI) Request, this link is a very useful online system to do that.
4. If you wish to make a formal complaint about a Council Service you need to go through a formal 3 stage process and describe the issue as a formal complaint under the 3 stage complaints process, otherwise the Council may consider the issue to be a “comment”. This link sets out the process. You can only go to the Parliamentary Ombudsman to make a complaint to them if you have exhausted the Council process.
