A public participation initiative that allows Powys residents to ask question at Full Council meetings is to return, the county council has said

Powys County Council provides a 20-minute slot at the start of full council meetings for public questions following a successful trial back in 2017. However, the initiative was suspended due to Covid-19 when council meetings were held virtually.

The county council have now confirmed that the initiative will now return for the October 2022 Full Council meeting, which takes place on Thursday, October 6.

In a statement they said:

Questions must relate to Powys and the services the county council provides. If accepted by the Chair of Council, they will be added to the Council Agenda in the order in which they are received.

To submit a question for the October Full Council meeting, email [email protected] by 5pm on Wednesday, September 21.
