We welcome all to the Parish Council Meetings held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month (except December) to make suggestions and raise community issues. Just pop along to the Chapel at 7pm and meet the councillors.
Here is the agenda for the next meeting;
Recording of Parish Council Meetings
On 6 August 2014 the 1960 Act was amended by the Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014. The amended 1960 Act provides that a person may not orally report or comment about a meeting as it takes places if he is present at the meeting of a parish council or it committees but otherwise may:
A. film, photograph or make an audio recording of a meeting;
B. use any other means for enabling persons not present to see or hear proceedings at a meeting as it takes place or later;
C. report or comment on the proceedings in writing during or after a meeting or orally report or comment after the meeting.
The Parish Council occasionally receives complaints of anti-social behaviour. If such an occurrence arises please report your issue to the police on their non-emergency line:
0845 60 60 247
So they can act to rectify the situation. We have raised issues with the police in the past, which they were not aware of and hence could do nothing about. Incidents can be reported anonymously and if you ask them not to call at your address they will of course oblige.
Please inform the Parish Council of any concerns regarding crimes, as we raise them at the quarterly Join Action Group (JAG) meetings held by the district council and North Yorkshire Police. Please email or come along to one of our meetings to let us know if there is an issue.
