Bayston Hill - Annual Parish Meeting - Tuesday 27th April 2021 - 7pm via Zoom Video Conferencing

Just for some background on what an Annual Parish Meeting is :-

  • To comply with the Local Government Act 1972, the Parish Annual Meeting must take place between 1 March and 1 June (both inclusive) in each year. The meeting cannot start before 6pm. The Annual Parish Meeting is not the Parish Council’s Annual Meeting.
  • All parish electors are entitled to attend the Parish Meeting and vote. The Public Bodies (Admission to Meetings) Act 1960 provides for the general public and the press to attend.
  • The Chair of the Council (or in his absence the Vice-Chair) must preside if present. If they are not present, the meeting may appoint a Chair for the meeting.

Also please note that a skelton Annual Parish Meeting has been brought forward to 27th April 2021 from 17th May 2021 so that a meeting may be held over Zoom.  There will be a proposal to hold an additional Parish Meeting later in the year when coronavirus restrictions are behind us.

The slated meetings on 17th May and 14th June 2021 may also be cancelled as Zoom meetings are currently expected to revert to face to face from 7th May 2021 but Council would prefer to wait until 21st June 2021 when most restrictions are expected to fall away. 

The Annual Meeting will take place on 10th May 2021 after the 6th May 2021 Parish Council Elections, it will be a very short agenda to allow for the new council to sign declaration of office forms and elect a Chairman.  All other business that would usually be undertaken will be dealt with at a later meeting of Full Council. The venue is expected to be the Youth & Community Building and Car Park if maximum numbers for a COVID compliant meeting are exceeded.
