Parish councils are the tier of local government closest to the community. The parish council is a corporate body and its members are democratically elected representatives working on behalf of the community. The work of the council is governed by statute and carried out through monthly meetings.
Upper Rissington Parish Council normally meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm in the Village Hall (and occasionally on the third Wednesday). The public are welcome to attend.
Meetings are held in public, but they are not public meetings; however, 15 minutes of each meeting is set aside as a public session, when members of the public are invited to comment on the business before the council or raise any questions. Please leave your contact details with the clerk if you would like a formal response.
Agendas and Minutes
The agenda for the next Parish Council meeting is published on the noticeboard and website three clear days before the meeting. Three clear days does not include Sundays, holidays, the day of the notice or the day of the meeting.
The Clerk records what happens at the meeting and produces minutes, which are considered and approved by the council at the next scheduled meeting. Unconfirmed minutes may appear on the website – but please be aware that these are subject to change.
