Wirral Council is fully committed to equalities and our obligations under The Equality Act 2010 and Public Sector Equality Duty.
We encourage people who have a protected characteristic to participate in public meetings and in the democratic process. If you have any adjustments that would help you attend or participate at this meeting, please let us know as soon as possible and we would be happy to facilitate where possible. Please contact email@example.com.
Members of the public who are residents of the Borough, or are a representative of a local firm or organisation, may ask questions of the Leader or Deputy Leader of the Council or the Chair of any Policy and Services Committee or a leader of a political group at ordinary meetings and, at the discretion of the Mayor, extraordinary meetings of the Council. If the question relates to any matter within the terms of reference of the Pensions Committee, any member of the public who is a member of the Local Government Pension Scheme in Merseyside or who ordinarily resides within the boundaries of the local authorities which are Scheme Employers, may put the question to the Chair of the Pensions Committee. Notice for public questions must be put in writing to the Monitoring Officer no later than midday three working days before the meeting and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
A member of the public may speak on up to two non-procedural items on any agenda if notice has been given no later than midday three working days before themeeting. No speech should exceed three minutes. Please give notice to email@example.com
Petitions may be presented to the Council if provided to Democratic and Member Services no later than 10 working days before the meeting, at the discretion of the Chair. The person presenting the petition will be allowed to address the meeting briefly (not exceeding three minute) to outline the aims of the petition. The Chair will refer the matter to another appropriate body of the Council within whose terms of reference it falls without discussion, unless a relevant item appears elsewhere on the Agenda. If a petition contains more than 5,000 signatures, it will be debated at a subsequent meeting of Council for up to 15 minutes, at the discretion of the Chair. Please give notice of petitions to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the meeting.
