- An objector to a proposal (maximum of 3 speakers or the same amount of time as allowed for supporters, whichever is the greater);
- A supporter of a proposal (including the applicant/agent) (maximum of 3 speakers or the same amount of time as allowed for objectors, whichever is the greater);
- A representative of the Parish Council / Parish Meeting / Town Council / Market Harborough Civic Society within which the site is located. If the application site sits within more than one Parish, all representatives are entitled to register to speak;
- Ward Member(s) (maximum of 5 minutes).
