Agenda item

Questions from Members of the Public


To receive questions from members of the public who wish to ask a general question in respect of matters within the Council’s area of responsibility or influence.


Subject to the Chair’s discretion, members of the public may ask one question and one supplementary question, which should relate to the original question and answered received.


Councillors may also ask questions under this agenda item.



A member of the public referred to his own predicament and the difficulties he had faced in his privately rented accommodation with theft of money and personal belongings and his dwelling not being up to a recognised standard.  He further elaborated on an issue with the boiler being condemned and the health and safety risks within the property.  He asked, therefore, if the Council could look to challenge and hold to account private landlords to maintain properties and under a Freedom of Information request how many other privately rented homes had been condemned.


The Leader confirmed that the member of the public would be contacted by relevant staff and the information provided to him.
