RESIDENTS will have a chance to ask questions about council policy when a new support group starts in January.
Forest of Dean District Council is to run twice-yearly Portfolio Holder's Support Group meetings in public.
The group is a cabinet support group and is therefore not usually open to the public.
However, the council wants to give residents an opportunity to watch planning policy taking shape, with one of the key issues it will look at being wind turbines.
The first meeting is to be held on January 21 at 5pm at the council offices in Coleford.
