Parish Council Meetings
Everyone is welcome to attend Parish Council Meetings. They normally (but not always!) take place on the 2nd Monday of every other month (starting January), at 7.00 pm, currently via Zoom.
An agenda is placed on the home page of the Parish website in the week preceding a meeting. When members of the public are present, meetings will commence with an Open Forum to provide an opportunity for them to address the Parish Council about any matter on the agenda or about any other subject which is important to them. They have an allocated time of three minutes to speak.
Dates of future Parish Council Meetings
The next meeting will be held on 17th May at 7pm, via Zoom or location tbc. If you are a member of the public and would like to participate in this meeting please email the Clerk at email@example.com for a meeting invitation, not less than 24 hours in advance. Members of the public are welcome to address the Council at the beginning of the meeting for an allocated time of three minutes.
Presenting your planning proposal
We are always very happy to discuss planning applications with Parish applicants. It must be emphasised that the Parish Council is only a consultee in the planning process and that the final decision rests with the B&NES Planning Authority.
Where appropriate, we will ask our Ward Councillors to request that an application is brought to the Development Management Committee for determination and we will make representation at the relevant Committee Meeting (Parish Councils get 3 minutes to speak).
