Attend or speak at an overview and scrutiny meeting
The council wants to encourage greater public participation in its work. This includes providing opportunities for the public to be involved with the overview and scrutiny process. This is the main way of ensuring transparent, democratic accountability for the running of the council.
You are welcome to come to our public meetings to see local democratic accountability in action. You can also speak in line with the council’s overview and scrutiny public participation scheme. This is under the control of the chairman of the meeting.
Meetings usually take place in the council chamber at Easthampstead House, in Bracknell town centre. Occasionally, meetings are held in community settings.
You can view the dates of the meetings online. Seven days before each meeting, the agenda is placed on the council’s notice boards and you can also view the agenda and minutes online.
Public participation scheme
This scheme gives members of the public the opportunity to tell councillors directly about the things that concern them. All issues raised by the public under this scheme will be given careful consideration. Three clear working days advance notice of matters to be raised at a meeting must be given.
The full public participation scheme is part of the council’s constitution.
