Holme Valley Parish Meeting

Published: 07 March 2020

This years Annual Parish Meeting of Holme Valley Parish will meet at Holmfirth Civic Hall on Monday 23rd March at 7pm. Parishioners of the Holme Valley are cordially invited to attend.

The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting of all the local government electors for the Parish. It is NOT a Meeting of the Parish Council. Anyone may attend but only registered electors of Holme Valley Parish may speak and vote.

The purpose of the Annual Parish Meeting is so that the Parish Council can tell parishioners what it has been doing over the last year and it enables the electors to have their say on anything they consider is important to the people of the Parish.

Any registered elector may ask questions of the Council, which will usually be answered by the Chairperson, the Clerk to the Council, or a designated Councillor. 

An elector may also make suggestions and comment on anything pertinent to the people of the Holme Valley. This will be welcomed and is the whole purpose of the meeting.

The Chairperson of the Parish Council will chair the meeting. If the Chair is not able to attend, then the meeting will elect a chairperson from amongst those electors present.

Councillors usually attend and will speak if need be. But the purpose of the meeting is to enable the ordinary electors to have their say. Councillors will listen with interest and, as electors themselves, also have the opportunity to raise questions and make comments if they wish.

A written record of the meeting will be taken and will be presented at a future meeting of Council for their consideration.
