GRENDON UNDERWOOD PARISH COUNCIL

Parish Councils are required by law to hold at least four General open public meetings per year and Grendon Underwood Parish Council has opted to hold 10 meetings per annum subject to circumstances arising. Meetings of the Parish Council take place on the last Tuesday of the month in the Committee Room of the Village Hall at 7.30 pm, unless otherwise stated. An Agenda will be published 3 clear days prior to a meeting both on this site and on the Village Hall noticeboard.

Our meetings are public, open meetings and the Chair usually sets aside a short period for residents of the Parish to address the Council. However, if any points raised are not already on the Agenda, Councillors may not have the necessary background information to allow them to discuss the matter at that meeting. But points raised will be placed on the Agenda for the following meeting.

If you need your matter to be discussed at the earliest opportunity, or you can't attend a meeting, email the Clerk at least 10 days before a meeting date with your question/query, for it to be considered for addition to the Agenda. If your matter becomes an Agenda item for when the Council next meets, it will be discussed and a decision made at that meeting. If it is considered inappropriate to be included to the Agenda for public discussion [such as for data protection concerns], you will be advised of the reasons why by email. So please make sure you include your email address with your query. You may also use the contact form in this web site too, if you prefer.

Members of the public cannot participate in the meeting except at the discretion of the Chairman.

Draft minutes will be published normally within 3 working days of the meeting for comments and corrections to be considered up to 3 working days before the next meeting. They will then be presented, together with any approved comments, at the following meeting for ratification. Once ratified, the Minutes will be posted as final on the web site.

MInutes that have been agreed at the meeting following which they were recorded will be posted on this page, usually around the same time as that meeting's draft minutes are published.

Minutes are required to be held indefinately and older minutes can be found on the Archive page.
