Parish Meetings

A Parish Meeting is different from a Parish Council Meeting.

Under the Local Government Act 1972, a Parish Meeting should be held between 1st March and 1st June. These Meetings are an opportunity for parishioners to get together to discuss local issues; and sometimes to hear a guest speaker talking on a parish related subject.

Within West Hatch, the ‘Annual Parish Meeting’ is normally scheduled for  the same day as the ‘Annual Meeting of the Parish Council’ .

However, a Parish Meeting can occur at other times and be convened by either:

  • the chairman of the parish council, or
  • any two parish councillors for the parish, or
  • any six local government electors for the parish

It should be noted that there is usually an opportunity at Parish Council Meetings for Parishioners to bring an item to the attention of the Council.
