Annual Parish Meeting
Every English Civil parish must hold an annual parish meeting. Importantly, the meeting must satisfy the statutory requirements as set out in the Local Government Act 1972 these include:
- The Annual Meeting is held for local government electors registered in the parish,
- If present, the Chair of the Parish Council (or Vice-Chair in the Chair’s absence) must preside.
- The meeting must assemble annually between 1st March and 1st June (both inclusive), and
- Proceedings must not begin before 6 pm.
Equally important is that the Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for residents to discuss what matters to them without the time constraints of a Parish Council meeting. It also allows local clubs and organisations to update the parish on their recent achievements.
The council will publish an agenda in advance of the meeting which will be available from this page.
The Agenda for 2023 was:
The next Annual Parish Meeting will be held on 24th April 2024
