Welcome to this meeting 


The following information explains the way some things are done at the meeting and some of the procedures.


Information about the Kingston Town Neighbourhood Committee


The Kingston Town Neighbourhood Committee is made up of your local elected Councillors and is responsible for making decisions about local services, which can be tailored to the local area


Do you want to ask a question?


There is a Question Time of up to 30 minutes from 7.30pm – 8pm.  Questions may be submitted in writing before the meeting or handed in at the start of the meeting on the green forms provided. (There are some green slips on the chairs and there are more copies.)  Please fill in the relevant part and hand this in to the Committee Secretary at the top table. 

For enquiries please contact  Marian Morrison 020 8547 4623,  email:


Where a full reply cannot be given at the meeting, a written reply will be sent to the questioner, members of the Committee and the local press.  The Chair may disallow any question which, in his/her opinion, is scurrilous, capricious, irrelevant or otherwise objectionable.


Running order


Are you here for a particular item? Items may be taken in a different order depending on the interests of the members of the public present at the meeting.  Please fill out a green form at the start of the meeting and hand this to the Committee Secretary if you would like to request that a particular item is heard earlier in the meeting.


Taking part in the meeting


During the course of the meeting, the Chair, at his/her discretion, may allow contributions, including questions  on items listed on the agenda.  To attract the Chair’s attention, please raise your hand.


Speaking at meetings


Speaking at a meeting can be a daunting prospect and every effort is made to make this as easy as possible.   Speech friendly arrangements will take account of people who may have a speech impairment, e.g. they may have a stammer.  If you have any individual requirements or feel that standing or addressing the meeting may present a difficulty, please let us know beforehand.  Arrangements will be made to help you as far as reasonably possible.


Emergency evacuation arrangements


If the fire alarm sounds, please leave the building by the nearest exit. If you require assistance, please remain seated and an Officer will assist you from the building.






More meeting information

·                Toilet facilities will be easily accessible from the meeting room.

·                For people who have hearing impairments, there is an induction loop (depending on the building, this may only be available in the first 2 or 3 rows).

·               A large print copy of the agenda can be requested in advance.


Recording of the meeting


 This meeting will be recorded and the recording will be available on the web site ( with the agenda and minutes.




Residents and journalists/media wishing to film meetings are permitted to do so but are asked to give advance notice of this and respect any concerns expressed by people on being filmed.





Councillors must say if they have an interest in any of the items on the agenda.  Interests may be personal or pecuniary.  Depending on the interests declared, it might be necessary for the Councillor to leave the meeting.  The detail on interests is in Part 5A of the Constitution - Members’ Code of Conduct.


Call In


Most of the decisions made at the Committee, except on decisions on planning applications/ planning enforcement/tree preservation orders and any licensing applications, can be called in for review by a minimum of 100 people who live, work or study in the Borough or 9 Councillors.  A Decision Notice will be published on the Council’s website soon after the meeting with details of the decisions and the   call in period expires 10 working days after the meeting. Decisions are not, therefore, acted upon until it is clear that they are not going to be called in.


The call in means the decision will be reviewed by a meeting of the Council’s Scrutiny Panel. The Panel at this meeting cannot change the original decision. It may decide that no further action is necessary, in which case the decision will be implemented or will refer the issue back to the decision making Committee (or, exceptionally, to a meeting of the Full Council) with its views and a request that the decision is reconsidered taking account of these views.




The minutes briefly summarise the item and record the decision.  They do not record who said what during the debate.




Speaking on Planning Applications, Enforcement, or TPOs


There is a registration scheme for residents wishing to speak on Planning Applications, Tree Preservation Orders or Enforcement cases to be determined by the Committee.


(For other items on the agenda, including planning applications on which the Neighbourhood is being consulted before the application is considered by the Development Control Committee, residents may ask questions and give their views at the discretion of the Chair.)


The arrangements for speaking on applications are based on both sides having equal time to make their points to Councillors. To make sure that the meeting runs in a way which is fair to everyone, these arrangements will be followed without any exceptions being made.  The full scheme is on the Council website at the ‘Council and Decision making’ webpages.


Everyone wishing to speak on an Application, Enforcement Action or Tree Preservation Order must have registered THREE days before the meeting.  Objectors must have responded to the consultation on an application.  To register please contact:

Marian Morrison 020 8547 4623, email:

Registration deadline: 10.00am Monday 25 March 2019.


Time for speaking - FIVE minutes is allowed for each side on each application.  This time has to be shared by however many there are on each side.  If there is a large number of speakers, people must decide amongst themselves on a spokesperson or some other arrangement.  The Chair of the meeting has no discretion to extend the time limit.


Speakers may find it helpful to have made some notes on what they want to say, so that they make the most of the speaking time.  The notes attached to the original consultation letter from the Planning Officer will have explained the things that the Committee can't take account of - loss of view, property values etc.
