Council meetings are formal events, they have a clear purpose - to make decisions. They are also public events, the meetings must be advertised and the press and public have a right to observe, record and report on how the Council operates.
Exceptions are where sensitive issues are discussed, such as legal, contratual or staffing matters. Council can then agree to exclude the press and public for that one item of business.
In addition to Council meetings, an Annual Parish Meeting must be held each year. Electors can contribute to the agenda and this meeting celebrates local activities and debates current issues within the community. The Chairman of the Parish Council will usually chair this meeting.
