Meetings

Due to the current 'lockdown' conditions, until further notice meetings will take place online.

The 28th July 2020 Town Council meeting will take place remotely via Zoom, starting at 6pm

Log-in details will be posted on our Facebook page and on the website homepage as they are available.

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.

The July Town Council meeting will be taking place on Tuesday, 28th July at 6.00 pm (online).  Login details can be found on the Home page.

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.  This was cancelled for 2020 due to Covid-19 and on advice from the Cheshire Association of Local Councils.  A Chair's Report will still be published.
