Parish Council Meetings
Members of the community are most welcome at our meetings. The agenda for each meeting is published in advance and provides details of the business to be discussed.
At the start of Council meetings time is set aside for members of the community to raise matters of concern or interest, or to ask the Council questions. Please note if you would like an item to appear on the Agenda details must be sent to the Parish Clerk at least five working days before the meeting. The Council is unable to make a decision on anything not included on the agenda, but can discuss newly raised matters and refer them to the next meeting.
If you would like more information about coming to our meetings and/or asking a question, please don't hesitate to contact the Parish Clerk, who will be pleased to help.
Our meetings are usually held in Scarning Village Hall at 7pm on the third monday of the month (see below for more details).
Minutes of meetings are posted on the website and are available from the Clerk. For more information, please contact the Parish Clerk (email@example.com)
