Parish Meeting

What is a Parish Meeting?

 

It is not a council meeting. It does have legal status and must happen once a year between 1st March and 1st June

 

It is a meeting of the electorate, where they can discuss any issue they want.

 

Who organises it?

 

As Stanwick has a Parish Council, it is organised by the Parish Council.

 

When is it?

 

Generally it is held in April. The date can be found on the Parish Council page, look for the calendar of meetings.

 

How can I get an issue discussed?

 

Contact the parish clerk at least 3 weeks before the meeting date so the issue can be put on an agenda.

 

Is it very dull?

 

Historically, yes.

 

Since 2015 the parish council has held the meeting as 'Stanwick Showcase' inviting local groups and businesses to put on a display and inviting outside organisations (Northants Police, SERVE, Well Being officiers, dog warden etc) to attend.

 

There is still the opportunity to have discussion amongst residents if any items of business are put forward for the agenda.

 

This format has been well received and will be continued in future years.
