There are usually eleven full meetings of the Town Council during a calendar year which take place at Parkers Farm, Delenty Drive, Birchwood and they are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month (except August and December may change) starting at 6.00 pm unless otherwise specified. There is usually no meeting in August as the Council is in Recess.
These meetings are open to the public, with a short period of time put aside for public participation at the beginning of each meeting.
The date of the December meeting, and if there is to be one, is confirmed nearer the time.This is because the date of the meeting usually coincides with Christmas week.
In an election year the Annual Town Meeting and the May Town Council meeting may need to be brought forward to take account of any applicable legal requirements. These meetings are usually held on the same evening.
Meeting dates for the next few months in 2017 are as follows:

The Annual Town Meeting is held in May of each year, which is an opportunity for residents to raise issues they wish the Town Council to address. At this meeting the outgoing Chair gives their report which informs residents of actions taken by the Town Council on their behalf during the last year as well as any proposed activities for the coming year.
