People in Exeter are being given the chance to quiz councillors on any “burning” issues for the city.

Exeter residents are invited to put forward questions to members of the joint County and City Councils' Exeter Board, at their next meeting on 15 January at 5:30pm at the Civic Centre in Paris Street.

The Board allocates 15 minutes for their ‘open forum’, with 3 minutes per speaker, with a maximum of three to four speakers to allow time for discussion.

Previously, residents have prompted debate about issues including street lighting, homelessness and waste collection.

Anyone wishing to speak is requested to submit their question or a brief outline of any points they may wish to make by 12 noon on Wednesday 12 January to Howard Bassett, Democratic Services Officer, Exeter City Council, Civic Centre, Paris Street, Exeter EX1 1JN or email

The agenda will be available to view online seven days before the meeting at
