Parish Council Meetings
The full Parish Council meets bi-monthly in June, September, November, January, March and May. The meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday. In May the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual Meeting of the Parish Council are held. Full details of all Parish Council meetings are posted on the diary page of the website.
Format of the meeting
In the first part of the meeting, there is an opportunity for members of the public to speak for up to three minutes on issues that affect the Parish. Later in the meeting, the councillors will discuss the issues raised and then formally respond to the member of the public as soon as practical after the meeting. The Police also attend the meeting and give a report for the Councillors’ attention. Finally the District and County Councillors give a report to the Parish Council.
Records of meetings
The minutes of the meetings are published as soon as they are approved by the Council at the following meeting. These are on the website (links below) and on the Parish notice boards.
The Parish Council has various committees that deal with the day to day issues of the Council. These give an opportunity for parishioners who do not want to give the full commitment of being a Councillor yet would like to contribute in some aspect of community activity. Currently there are committees for Finance, Planning, Facilities, the Wapping Nature Reserve, Communications, Activities and Allotments. The full Council will from time to time decide to set up further committees or close existing ones. All committee decisions are subject to ratification at a full Council meeting. Members are elected by the Council and confirmed each year at the AGM of the Parish Council.
