You can ask to have a meeting with the Mayor to discuss any issues or ideas you have about our city.

Email and tell us:

  • your name and contact details
  • the name of your organisation or group
  • the reason you’d like to meet with the Mayor.

We’ll make an appointment for you to meet the Mayor. 

We need at least two weeks to set up the meeting. If we think your request could be met by a council officer, we’ll refer you to them and they’ll follow up with the Mayor.
