Residents are being given the chance to ask questions of the Elected Mayor and her cabinet members.
North Tyneside Council’s next full council meeting on Thursday, March 23, will allow members of the public to raise any local concerns.
Questions – which should include full names, address, and be relevant to the council or North Tyneside – should be submitted before 5pm on Tuesday, March 14.
They should be sent in writing to Democratic Services, Quadrant - 3L, The Silverlink North, Cobalt Business Park, North Tyneside, NE27 0BY; faxed to (0191) 643 2430; or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Individuals will have the option to personally ask their question at the meeting, given two minutes to ask it, along with a further minute for any potential supplementary questions.
Supplementary questions must arise from the initial question or reply. These can also be rejected by the chair if they do are deemed inappropriate, unlawful or offensive.
All questions to the Mayor or Cabinet Members asked by the public at a Council meeting will be recorded in a register which will be available for public inspection.
If you can not attend the meeting, the Chair may ask the question for you or may decide that a written reply will be given.
Any question which can not be dealt with during the 30 minutes will be dealt with by a written answer provided to the questioner within five working days of the meeting.
