The parish council now meets on the 3rd Wednesday each month – except for August, and occasionally December, in the Jubilee Hall, Banningham.
The council year starts in May, with the Annual Parish council Meeting, where the Chairman, Vice-Chairman and representatives to Committees are elected and appointed for the next year.
The next meeting is on Wednesday 21 February 2018, the Agenda is below:
This year’s Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Tuesday 14 March 2017 at 7pm in the Jubilee Hall. This is YOUR chance to find out what the Council has done during the past year and what plans there are for 2017/18.
Following changes in the organisation of the Police, we have invited PC Peter Davison, the newly appointed Community Engagement Officer, based at North Walsham, to come along and give an overview of his role within the new structure. He has confirmed he will be attending, so please come along.
You will find the Agenda and the draft Minutes of last year’s meeting in the relevant sections of the Meetings pages.
The Parish Council adopted the accounts at the May meeting, and completed the first 2 sections of the Annual Return. The Independent Internal Auditor will report to the June meeting.
All local government electors have the right to inspect the accounts for a statutory period before the external audit Please see the Notice of Elector’s Rights for the arrangements.
The Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Tuesday 8 March 2016, at 7pm in the Jubilee Hall. This is YOUR chance to hear about the Council’s work during the past year, and to flag up issues you would like the Parish Council to work on in the coming year.
A highlight of the meeting this year will be Peter Evans, Chairman of Norfolk Homewatch, who will update us on the latest developments. We do have a couple of schemes running in the village and want to re-launch to take account of changes in property ownerships etc.
You can find the agenda and read the minutes of last year’s meeting in the “meetings” section of the website.
As usual, the meeting will be followed by a parish council meeting. The council still has 3 vacancies for councillors – if you’ve been thinking about it, come along and find out more. The parish also needs a new oil scheme co-ordinator – it’s not an onerous task as there is no bulk ordering involved with the AF Affinity scheme. Once people have registered, it’s their decision whether or not to use the scheme for their purchases.
The Parish Council has two vacancies at the present time, both of which can be filled by co-option.
If you would like more information on the work of a Councillor, please contact the Clerk or one of the current Councillors. Alternatively, please look at this leaflet which was prepared as information for the 2015 elections.
It’s difficult for the Council to go forward without a full complement of Councillors – there must be someone out there with a little time to spare. If you’re interested, please contact either the Clerk or one of the existing Councillors – alternatively come along to a parish council meeting, you will be surprised at the variety of issues the Council deals with!
Wanted – 3 Parish Councillors!!
Following the uncontested election in May, the Council is running at the moment with only 4 of the seven seats filled. Three more Councillors are urgently needed and the Parish Council is looking to co-opt at the meeting on Tuesday 8 September. Interested?? Speak to one of the current Councillors or the Clerk, or see the leaflet which was prepared for this year’s elections and which will give you more information. Then write to the Clerk (email is fine) with the following information by Tuesday 3 November 2015:
These are interesting and challenging times for local government – be a part of it!!
