Fareham Borough Council has adopted a Deputation Scheme for all of its meetings which form the Council's Committee Structure. The scheme allows anyone currently living, working or studying in the Borough to speak on a specific topic which, in the case of a meeting of the Executive, must relate to an item for discussion on the agenda for that meeting. This page outlines the guidelines and rules for speaking at a meeting of the Executive.
Executive meetings are held 11 times a year and usually take place in the Collingwood Room. Executive meetings are attended by the 6 Members of the Executive including the Executive Leader who Chairs the meeting. Further details about our Executive meetings and a full list of meeting dates can be found at Executive Meeting.
In order to make a deputation you must formally apply to us in writing first. This can be done via email, by post, completing a form at the Civic Offices or by completing this online form: Deputation Request.
To avoid delays in your request being processed, when applying to make a deputation, please do not send anything to us other than your deputation request. You will be contacted to confirm your request has been accepted, and at that point, if you wish to submit a written deputation you will be advised further.
If you would like to speak at an Executive meeting, we ask that you abide by a few ground rules:
The rules of our deputation scheme are bound by the Council's Constitution, which can be found by following this link: Deputation Scheme (524 KB).
