The City of Wolverhampton Council is inviting residents to get more involved in local democracy by submitting a question to Full Council meetings.

From January, Full Council meetings will now include an allocated time of 15 minutes for members of the public to ask questions to the Council.

Only residents of Wolverhampton are allowed to submit a question, and it can only be one question per Full Council meeting.

City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Governance and Equalities, Councillor Paula Brookfield said: “We are a democratic council and, as such, I would encourage Wolverhampton residents to be part of the democratic decision making process to have their voices heard; make use of the opportunity to ask the Council any questions they may have to participate in shaping the city to be the best it can be.” 

Residents should address questions they would like to ask to one of the members of the Cabinet. For information about the Cabinet and their roles please go to Cabinet

When submitting your question to a Full Council meeting, you must give your name, address and, where possible, an email address. The address supplied must be the address at which you live and be within the City boundary. 

Please note that questions may only be submitted to Full Council meetings with only with prior notice, following the process outlined at How to ask a question at a Full Council Meeting, where the relevant form to submit questions can also be found.
