How to get involved
The Council welcomes the public’s involvement in scrutiny to help strengthen transparency and accountability. Here are a few ways in which you can get involved:
Watch a meeting
Committee meetings are open to the public, just turn up. See list of upcoming committee meetings. Alternatively watch the meetings on webcast.
Suggest a scrutiny topic
Ask a question to a Select Committee
Anyone who lives, works or studies in Buckinghamshire is able to ask a Select Committee question on an issue. These will be passed on to the relevant decision-maker for a response.
See more details in the Downloads section below on the procedure for public questions.
