Address Council

How to Present an Issue to Council:

Town HallIf you have an issue you wish to be considered by Town Council, submit a letter outlining your concerns:

  • By Mail: View Royal Town Hall
    Attn: Mayor & Council
    45 View Royal Avenue
    Victoria BC V9B 1A6
  • By Fax: 250-727-9551
  • By Email: mayorandcouncil@viewroyal.ca

Town staff will advise you when the item is scheduled to appear on a meeting agenda.

You do not need to be present at the Council meeting for Council to consider your issue. However, should you wish to supplement your letter by making a verbal presentation at the Council meeting, please follow the procedure described below for requests to "appear as a delegation".

Individuals wishing to "appear as a delegation" should send a letter of request or complete the Petitions & Delegations Form [PDF - 10 KB], providing sufficient detail to describe the topic, the presenters and meeting date they wish to appear. The letter or completed form should be submitted to the Clerk by 12:00 noon on the Thursday prior to the meeting. This procedure provides Council an opportunity to prepare, resulting in a prompt and informed response.

What Happens Next?

Once Council considers and makes a decision on your issue, you will be advised of the decision made in response to your letter or appearance as a petitioner or delegation.

Staff prepare "unofficial" minutes of Council meetings and Council considers and adopts the minutes at the next Council meeting. Once the minutes are formally adopted, they are available to the public and will be available for viewing on the website. Click here to view Council meeting minutes.


Please be advised that your name and address on written submissions or from your verbal comments will be included in the permanent public Council meeting minutes. The proceedings may also be recorded.
