Speak at a Full Council Meeting

Information about how residents can register to speak at Full Council meetings.

Full Council meetings opened for public participation

Have your say

This is your Council. To make our community the best place it can be we need to hear from you. If you are a resident of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, please consider coming to a Full Council meeting to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences.

We are looking to the future, and we are putting residents first.

Timings and registration

Ten public speaking slots are reserved at the beginning of each Full Council meeting for people who live, work or go to school in the borough to address the Council.

Each speaker will be allotted up to five minutes, which includes the time used by the Council to respond.

The next Full Council meeting will be held at Kensington Town Hall in the Council Chambers on Wednesday 17 October 2018 at 6.30pm.

To register, please use the online form below, or email: theleader@rbkc.gov.uk


Registration will remain open until the 10 public speaking slots have filled. As of 19 September 4 public speaking slots are available.


To help make speakers as comfortable as possible with the process, a facilitator from The Democratic Society will be available to provide support before and after the meeting.

The Democratic Society is an independent non-profit organisation that supports democratic participation and the citizen’s voice.

After the meeting

The Council is committed to providing people who choose to speak during the meeting a written response to their question within 10 working days. This response will either be mailed or emailed to you, depending on the information you provided when you registered.

All Full Council meetings are filmed and broadcast live on our Council Meeting Webcasts page. We strive to have full recordings posted within 48 hours of the meeting date.

To read information related to questions received from residents during previous Full Council Meetings please visit the Full Council Meeting Responses web page.


We value what you have to say about the process for speaking at Full Council meetings. Let us know what works and what we can do to improve. Please email your feedback to theleader@rbkc.gov.uk.
