This meeting is usually held in May when the Parish Council Chairman and Vice Chairman for the forthcoming year are elected and Parish Council policies are reviewed and confirmed or amended for the following year.
ANNUAL PARISH MEETING
The Annual Parish Meeting is held annually, usually preceding the May meeting of the Parish Council. This is a meeting where representatives of village groups meet to report on their activities during the previous year and let other people know of events to be held during the forthcoming year. This is not a Parish Council meeting, although it is chaired by a Parish Councillor.
The Parish Council reviews all planning applications affecting the parish. We then pass our opinion to Mid Suffolk District Council which they may take into account when they make their decision to permit, deny or permit with conditions.
You can view all current and past applications by searching Mid Suffolk District Council's online planning page..
During the current Covid-19 crisis some Parish Council Meetings may be held virtually. Details of any such meetings will be published on this website.
