About our Monthly Meetings

The main monthly meetings start at 6pm, and are usually held at Parkers Farm Community Centre, unless otherwise notified.

Members of the public are welcome to attend.  There is an opportunity for visitors to raise any matters of concern during the Public Participation section, which is one of the first items on the monthly agenda. 

Agenda Notices and a copy of the Clerk's Report are placed on local notice boards in advance of the meeting and a copy is also sent to the Birchwood Library for reference.

Minutes of Main Meetings and Part I Finance will be published following ratification at the next monthly meeting.

Draft Minutes

For the avoidance of doubt, readers are please asked to note the following caveat in relation to the draft minutes published here:

For the sake of topicality, immediacy and relevance, the Town Council publishes here the unapproved draft minutes of the most recent of its meetings.  These minutes will not normally be approved until the next meeting of the Town Council and therefore are not the formal minutes of record.  The minutes published here may contain unintended errors or inacuracies and therefore may be subject to correction and amendment at the next meeting.
