ANNUAL PARISH MEETINGS

17 Feb 2020


 

 

LAVERTON ANNUAL PARISH MEETING AND KIRKBY MALZEARD PARISH MEETING -  BOTH NOW POSTPONED UNTIL LATER IN THE YEAR
 

Each Parish throughout the country is required by law to hold a Parish Meeting between March 1st and June 1st each year, and in the past Kirkby Malzeard and Laverton/Dallowgill held a joint meeting in April. From 2019 onwards separate Parish Meetings will be held for Laverton (which includes Dallowgill) Parish in March and for Kirkby Malzeard Parish in April. 

The purpose of the Parish Meeting is to provide an opportunity for anyone on the Electoral Register of that Parish to discuss general topics affecting the Parish and is an opportunity for representatives from community groups to come together, introduce themselves to residents, report on achievements and activities for the year and provide a backdrop for the showcasing of new and ongoing projects. The Parish Council also reports on its ventures and the grants that have been distributed throughout the year. With local council, voluntary/community groups and residents coming together it is intended to encourage mutual cooperation and foster community spirit.

Whilst Chaired by the Parish Council Chairman, Parish Meetings are not Council meetings being better described as a 'residents meeting' where any relevant issue can be raised for discussion. More information is provided in the Appendix to our Standing Orders document.
