Meetings of the Board are open for members of the public to attend and listen to the discussion. Board meeting agendas include an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions about matters within the Board’s remit, and up to 30 minutes is allocated for the Board to receive and respond to questions. It is not necessary for questions to be submitted in advance, but it would be helpful if questions could be submitted at least 24 hours before the meeting, to enable the Board to provide as full a response as possible. Questions to the Board can be submitted to constitutional.services@nottinghamcity.gov.uk. The acceptance of questions at the meeting is at the discretion of the Chair and any inappropriate questions, for example those that are outside the remit of the Board or vexatious, will not be considered.
