Annual Parish Meeting - Local Government Act 1972 SCHEDULE 12 Part III

There can be, and often is, confusion between the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council.

All Parish and Town Councils throughout England are required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting, which must take place between 1st March and the 1st June (inclusive). Meetings should not commence before 6.00 pm.

Purpose of the Annual Parish Meeting

The meeting acts as an annual democratic point of communication enabling the Parish Council to explain what it has been doing over the last year and providing an opportunity for the electors to have their say on anything they consider is important  to the people of the Parish.

Who can attend the meeting

The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting of all the local government electors for the Parish, which the public are entitled to attend and participate in.

Will I be able to ask questions and make suggestions?

Yes, any registered elector may ask questions of the Council, which will usually be answered by the Chairperson, the Clerk to the Council, or a designated Councillor.

An elector may also make suggestions and comment on anything relevant to the residents of Crowthorne.

Who will chair the meeting?

The Chairman of the Parish Council will chair the meeting or in his/her absence the Vice Chairman.

Will Parish Councillors be there?

Yes, however, the purpose of the meeting is to enable the ordinary electors to have their say. Councillors will listen with interest and as electors themselves, also have the opportunity to raise questions and make comments if they wish.

Will notes be taken of the meeting?

Yes, a written record of the meeting will be taken and presented at the next Annual Parish meeting for approval.

What else happens at the meeting?

In recent years we have invited guest speakers from local clubs, societies and other voluntary and statutory organisations to talk about the work/activities of their group and/or present information on topics of local interest. During this meeting the annual grants are presented to organisations involved in delivering valued services to the Crowthorne Community.

How long will the meeting last?

As long as need be within reason.  It will depend on those speaking and the amount of grants presented, generally the meeting will last no longer than 2 hours.
