This can be done online by sending the request to democratic.services@westsuffolk.gov.uk or telephoning 01638 719237 or in person by telling the Committee Administrator present at the meeting.   However, due to the need to comply with coronavirus regulations and guidance, necessary health and safety precautions taken will apply to members of public registered to speak and, therefore, would urge anyone who wishes to register to speak to notify Democratic Services by 9am on the day of the meeting so that advice can be given on the arrangements in place.
