Coventry Council is an open and transparent local authority and encourages public attendance at meetings.

To enable the public to view meetings, where it is anticipated there will be high volumes of public interest, some meetings (such as Planning Committee) will be live-streamed and can be viewed via the Council’s website. If you are able to view online, please consider this option first to help us manage public access.

Where public speakers are permitted, alternative arrangements to attending in person are available and Governance Services Officers can advise on this.

The number of members of the public who can be safely accommodated at each meeting will be dealt with on an individual basis, taking into account factors such as size of the membership and room capacity.

If you wish to attend in person, you are encouraged to contact the Governance Services Officers whose details are included on the meeting agenda in order to discuss arrangements. If you attend the meeting without contacting us in advance, there may not be a place available for you.

Please inform Governance Services Officers if you have any mobility issues prior to the meeting, to enable suitable arrangements to be put in place.
