Council Meetings

The council meets bi-monthly usually on the second Wednesday of the month starting with its Annual Meeting in May.  This meeting follows the Annual Parish Meeting and is held in the Alton Room of St James' Church.  Other council meetings are usually held at the Village Corn Store starting at 7pm.

However, due to the Coronavirus epidemic, meetings are temporarily being held by video conferencing. Members of the public and press are welcome to attend and should contact the Clerk for details.  

The schedule of council meetings for 2020/21 can be found here.  Any change to the day or time of a meeting is decided a week beforehand.  

The Council serves the needs and interests of the Parish.  Special requests, suggestions or requirements should be addressed to the Clerk for action or for discussion at a council meeting.  Agendas are posted on the council's notice boards and website 7 days prior to the meeting and draft Minutes are published shortly after the meeting in the same way.

Council meetings are run according to rules set out in its 'Standing Orders'.  These are based on those recommended by the National Association of Local Councils and reviewed annually to ensure they remain appropriate.  The latest version adopted at the council meeting held on 13 May 2020  can be found here. The amendments adopted at the meeting on 13 May 2020 needed to allow for meetings to be held remotely can be found here
