Parish Council Committees

Parish Council Meetings

Parish Council Meetings take place on the first Monday of every month (except August). Where possible, the meeting is attended by all of the Parish Councillors (elected representatives) and hosted by a ‘Chair’ and ‘Vice Chair’. Every meeting has a fixed format and an agenda is published in advance. Members of the public may attend the Parish Council meeting and have an opportunity to comment during an open session. All meetings agendas and minutes are made available to the public and are available here.
Standing Committees
Two ‘Standing Committees’ meet to discuss Parish Council finances and planning issues in greater depth. Meetings are held monthly and agendas and minutes can be viewed here.

Subcommittees
There are currently 5 ‘Subcommittees’ operating within the Parish Council. Each committee holds its own meeting and publishes a separate agenda and meeting minutes. Subcommittees meetings are held to discuss a specific local amenity. They are made up of a smaller number of Councillors and (where appropriate) interested third parties. The frequency of meetings varies (usually a few times a year).
Working Groups
Working Groups are brought together to discuss larger projects that have a long-term impact on the Parish. These projects are too large in scope to be covered in detail at the Parish Council meeting and are usually temporary in nature. Working Groups can be made up of both Councillors and interested third parties (usually local residents). The number of group members and frequency of meetings will vary according to the size and importance of the project.
