Got a question to ask the candidates?
All you need to know about Council

We want your questions

If you could ask anything to those standing in this year’s elections, what would it be? Maybe you want to know their views on certain issues, or maybe it’s something that’s affecting you and your community. Whatever it is, here’s your chance!


Send us your questions and they could be put to the candidates at our ‘Meet the Candidates Debate’ series.

*All questions received will be themed, with several selected. Please note, due to time constraints at the debates not all questions will be put to candidates.

Thank you! Your question has been received.
