Your Parish Council
Parish and Town Councils operate as non-political bodies serving the community by dealing with local issues and working with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to represent the concerns of the parish. Councillors are elected every four years in local elections, the last election being Thursday 7 May 2015 and the next to be held on Thursday 2 May 2019 The Council employs a Clerk whose role is to ensure that the business of the Parish Council runs smoothly within the legal requirements.
Regular monthly full council meetings are held along with various committees. Dates are listed on the Meetings/Committee pages along with agenda and minutes. Details of meetings are also displayed on the Council notice boards.
Committee Meetings are open to members of the press and public except for any specific item marked as a Confidential Session under the Public Bodies (Admission to Meetings) Act 1960. A Public Forum is held at the start of each meeting. Members of the Public should note that decisions on their comments cannot be made at a meeting unless the item is on the agenda. It should also be noted that members of the press and public may not speak when Council is in session.
