Annual Parish Meeting

A MEETING of the PARISH will be held at Westleigh URC on Thursday, 11 May 2023 at 18:00.

ALL ELECTORS of the PARISH are welcome to attend for the purposes of transacting the business specified in the Agenda which is set out below:

Please Note:  Under the Local Government Act, it is mandatory for every parish to hold an Annual Parish Meeting once a year between the dates of 1st March and 1st June. The meeting must commence after 18:00 and is not governed by the same rules and regulations as a Parish Council meeting.

The Annual Parish Meeting is not a Parish Council meeting and is presided over by the Chairman of the Parish Council (or vice-chair in their absence) only if a Parish Council exists. Otherwise, the meeting elects its own Chairman.

The Agenda for the Annual Parish Meeting is a standard agenda that reports on the business conducted during the preceding 12 months. Reports are presented by the Parish Council on its activities over the previous year, County and District Councillors, and any voluntary or local community groups. The meeting also offers parishioners the opportunity to ask questions of people and organisations concerning any matters relating to the village.

Members of the public are allowed to make statements on relevant issues during the meeting. However, any resolutions passed during the Annual Parish Meeting do not bind the Parish Council.
