Parish Council Meetings

Residents are most welcome at our meetings. The agenda for each meeting is published in advance and provides details of the business to be discussed.

 

At the start of Council meetings time is set aside for residents to raise matters of concern or interest, or to ask the Council questions. Please note that if you would like an item to appear on the agenda details must be sent to the Parish Clerk at least seven working days before the meeting. The Council is unable to make a decision on anything not included on the agenda, but can discuss newly raised matters and refer them to the next meeting.

If you would like more information about coming to our meetings and/or asking a question, please don't hesitate to contact the Parish Clerk, who will be pleased to help. 

 

Our meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of every month except August. We meet in the Community Hub at Blenheim Grange and in the Village Hall. Details of each meeting can be found on the website and in the parish noticeboards. Most of our meetings start at 7pm, but please see a copy of the Agenda for each meeting for more information.

The Role of the Clerk

The Clerk has a wide range of responsibilities, which include the management of all Council owned assets, as well as the daily running of Council administration.

 

The Clerk is the Council's Responsible Financial Officer.
