Right to attend
A local lady I was talking to was unaware that she could attend council meetings.
If there is a public gallery in the House of Commons in London, and the House of Representatives and Senate in America it stands to reason that East Devon District Council (EDDC) and the town council have a place for the public to witness meetings.
Members of the public can also ask questions at meetings of EDDC and town council, which include planning meetings.
Call the district council on 16551/town council on 512424 for further information on this.
