Meetings of the Parish Council are usually held on the first Tuesday of every month, starting in January and conducted in Nempnett Thrubwell Village Hall, Dewdown, Newpnett Thrubwell, BS40 8YJ. The meetings commence at 19:30. At the start of each agenda, time is set aside for members of the public to voice any concerns or raise any questions they may have.
The Annual Meeting of the Parish is held on the first Tuesday in May at 19:00 prior to the Council meeting.
Members of the public are reminded that when making any comment that a Council meeting is a public meeting for which minutes are produced and published. Members of the public are always welcome to attend but are unable to intervene or comment in the actual business of the council meeting.
If a member of the public thinks there is a particular item which the Parish Council should consider, then please contact either the Clerk or any of the Councillors and ask for it to be included on an agenda for a future meeting. Agendas are normally prepared one week before the meeting to which they relate so please make sure that your request is made in good time. If there are reasons why an item cannot be discussed at a meeting then an explanation will be given at that meeting.
Agendas and notices of Parish Council meetings are posted on the Council’s notice boards at the village hall, at Street Farm and at the crossroads on Thrubwell Lane at least 5 clear days before a meeting, excluding Saturday and Sunday. Draft Minutes of meetings are also posted on the same noticeboards and on this website within two weeks of the Meeting taking place, with final Minutes replacing these shortly after approval by the council at the subsequent meeting.
NOTE: during the Coronavirus epidemic all scheduled meetings have been cancelled and any essential meetings will be a video conference on ZOOM and full details of how to attend the meeting will appear on the agenda. The use of the (3) notice boards will also cease during this period.
