Uley Parish Council arranges an Annual Parish Meeting, which must take place between 1st March and the 1st June (inclusive). The event is not a formal Parish Council meeting but is facilitated by the Parish Council for the benefit of the community.
The purpose of the Annual Parish Meeting is so that the Parish Council can report and explain what it has been doing over the previous year and it enables the electors to have their say on anything they consider is important to the people of the Parish. Speakers may also be invited to talk on subjects of interest.
The Annual Parish Meeting is not a Meeting of the Parish Council but is a public meeting for all the electors of the Parish. Anyone may attend but only registered electors of the Parish may vote. The meeting is an opportunity to discuss ‘parish affairs’.
The Chairman of the Parish Council will chair the meeting. If the Chair is not able to attend, then the Vice Chairman will do so, if they are not present, the meeting will elect a chairperson from amongst those electors present.
Parish Councillors will attend and speak if need be, but the purpose of the meeting is to enable the ordinary electors to have their say. Councillors will listen with interest, as electors themselves, and also have the opportunity to raise questions and make comments if they wish.
A written record of the meeting will be taken and will be presented at a future meeting of the Parish Council for their consideration. The record will also be posted on this website and the public noticeboards.
