ANNUAL PARISH MEETING

 

 

All Parish Councils in England are required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting in May each year.  The meeting allows the Council and local community organisations to explain what they has been doing over the last year and electors can have their say on anything which they consider is important to the people of the parish.

Who can attend the meeting?

Anyone may attend but only registered electors may ask questions.  An elector may also make suggestions and comment on anything pertinent to the people of Reach - this will be welcomed and it is the whole purpose of the meeting.

Who will chair the meeting?

Normally the Chairperson of the Parish Council will chair the meeting otherwise the meeting will elect a Chairperson from amongst those electors present.

Will Parish Councillors be there?

Usually they do attend and will speak as necessary but the purpose of the meeting is to enable the electors to have their say.  Councillors will listen and as electors themselves, also have the opportunity to raise questions and make comments if they wish.

Will notes be taken of the meeting?

Yes, a written record of the meeting will be taken and presented at a future meeting of Parish Council for their consideration. 

Can I suggest Agenda items?

Yes, just get them to the Clerk to the Parish Council or come along to the meeting and raise the item then.

Are Minutes taken?

Yes - they can be found on the Minutes page when they are available.
