If you would like to speak at a virtual Town Council meeting please contact the Town Council office prior to the meeting date. To observe the meeting the log in details for the Zoom meeting can be found on the relevant agenda, which is posted both on the website and in the notice board outside Wayland Hall, usually the Wednesday before the meeting.

At each Town Council meeting there is a 15 minute slot on the agenda for Public Participation when members of the public are invited to address the Council. This 15 minutes can be extended at the discretion of the Chairman, which is why we ask that anyone wishing to speak contacts the Office first so the Chairman can consider whether any extension may be necessary. Members of the public are not usually permitted to speak at any other time in the meeting and thus are asked to stay muted at virtual meetings (as do Councillors) unless invited to speak. The Town Council Standing Orders do not allow Councillors to use the “chat” facility during Zoom meetings so questions will not be answered this way but any posts will be seen.

Although the Town Council Office is currently closed during lockdown The Town Council is still working on behalf of the residents of Watton and please continue to contact the Town Council Office by email or phone.

Town Councillors are corresponding with staff and each other and The Council continues to consider planning applications received for consultation and comments are passed to Breckland District Council as the Local Planning Authority.
