If you would like to add a matter to the agenda, please contact Caro at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each year an Annual Parish Meeting is held at which residents can air issues and ask the Parish Council to investigate certain matters which are of concern. The meeting is NOT a formal Parish Council meeting but it is facilitated and funded by the Parish Council for the benefit of the community: the Parish Council Chairman calls and chairs the meeting.
The meeting is an opportunity to discuss ‘parish affairs’. Separate minutes must be kept which are then approved at the next Annual Parish Meeting, next year. The minutes of the Annual Parish Meeting are not approved by the Parish Council.
There is no prescribed format for this meeting and its recommendations are not binding on the Parish Council. Any matters raised requiring a Council decision will need to be considered at a Parish Council meeting at a later date.
