Important information - booking to attend council meetings
All members of the public must book a space in order to attend a council meeting. If there is more than one council meeting on the same day, i.e. if an extraordinary council meeting has been called to follow the scheduled council meeting, you only need to book for the earliest meeting, but you may attend the subsequent meeting(s).
You can use our online form to book a space at the next council meeting. Please note, bookings only open one week before the meeting.
Arrangements are in place to ensure the smooth running of Middlesbrough Council meetings.

Access to the lift for those with disabilities is via the rear door in the corner of the quadrangle behind the Town Hall.
The capacity of the public gallery will be limited to 40 people to comply with health and safety, and fire, regulations.
