Each Question Time event will follow these timings:

  • 7 to 7.45pm: Pre-submitted questions
  • 7.45 to 8.45pm: Open floor questions
  • 8.45pm: Event close

Submit your question in advance

To ensure that a spread of topics are discussed on the night, you can submit questions in advance. These will be covered in the first 45 minutes of the event. The second hour will be opened to the floor to allow questions on other topics. An independent chairperson will host each event.

We will only accept questions about issues which impact the village hosting the Question Time.

You can submit more than one question, however you will only be able to ask one. A member of the Village Planning team will email you one week before the event to confirm your question.

You must ask your question at the event in person or nominate a delegate to ask this on your behalf.

If you are unable to attend, each event will be streamed live on our Facebook page and you can tweet your questions during the event at @LBRUT on Twitter using #VillageQT.
