NOTES FOR RESIDENTS Attending Soham Town Council Meetings

By law, all Soham Town Council Councillors have an obligation to attend Full Council Meetings. Providing there is no possibility of personal gain any member of the Council is allowed to participate, make comments and vote. Members of the public can attend, watch and listen. But if anything discussed is of confidential or special nature, whereby publicity would be prejudicial to the public interest, members of the public and press will be asked to withdraw temporarily. All exclusions require a specific resolution from the council. Full Council Meetings are held in the Council Offices at The Walter Gidney Pavilion, Recreation Ground, Fountain Lane, Soham and normally take place on the second Monday of each calendar month (except August during recess) commencing at 7.15pm.

Speaking at Soham Town Council Meetings

Towards the beginning of the meeting the public will be allowed to speak for 3 minutes each (up to a maximum of 15 minutes) and are able to comment, put forward ideas and opinions or raise a complaint. For permission to speak, a request must be made to the Town Clerk before midday on the day of the meeting. The Council is not obliged to respond to comments made under the Public Comment Time. Under the Local Government Act 1972, members of the public have a statutory right to attend meetings but not to speak. Allowing members of the public to speak at a meeting is a concession granted by the Council.
