Workings of the Council - Minutes
Minutes document the attendance of councillors at each meeting, the items discussed and any payments made.
Produced by the Clerk, they are probably the most important publication of any Parish Council.
A Parish Council has limited powers of its own but can bring local issues to the attention of District and County Councils so that they can take action where necessary. The minutes record such requests and monitor the progress of ongoing issues.
The official minutes of the Council are signed and dated by the Chair at the following meeting to verify that they are a true reflection of events. The documents on this web site are therefore not the official documents but are substantially the same. Original signed official documents are kept by the Clerk and can be made available for public inspection at reasonable hours by contacting the Clerk.
