The when & where for Parish council Meetings?

Parish Council Meetings

The Parish Council has 8 members and is elected every four years. The last election was in 2019. Those interested in serving on the Parish Council are particularly welcome to attend meetings, and should ask the Clerk for advice on election procedures.

The Council normally meets bi-monthly in Hawkley Village Hall at 7.30pm on a Wednesday. The meeting in April includes the Annual Parish Meeting when the Council reports back on the activities of the previous year and May is the AGM when Officers and Committees are elected.

Parish Council meetings are open to the public. Residents can share comments or concerns either with the councillors in advance of the meeting or during the Public Question Time at the start of the meeting.

The District and County Councillors try to attend Council Meetings.

The Council employs a part-time Clerk to deal with all correspondence, take minutes, and execute Council decisions; the clerk is also the Responsible Financial Officer (RFO).
