There are usually ten or 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 the December date 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, starting at 6.00 pm, are as follows:
Tuesday 28th January 2020 - Policy, Strategy and Engagement Sub-Committee
Tuesday 25th February 2020
Tuesday 24th March 2020
Tuesday 28th April 2020
The date of the May meeting is to be confirmed as 2020 is an election year.
The address for Parkers Farm Community Centre is: Birchwood Town Council, Parkers Farm Community Centre, Delenty Drive, Birchwood, WA3 6AN
Agenda Notices and a copy of the Clerk's Report are placed on local noticeboards in advance of the meeting. A copy is also available at Birchwood Library.
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.
