Parish Council Meetings

Buckland Parish Council meetings are held in the Reading Room, Old Road, Buckland, commence at 8pm, with the next meeting scheduled for 7.30pm on Monday 23rd October 2017.

Your Parish Council welcomes members of the public to all its meetings and provides an opportunity to speak at the start of each meeting during an open session called the “Public Forum”.  Members of the public are invited to put questions or draw relevant matters to Council’s attention.  The Chairman will, at the start of the Public Forum, confirm the amount of time available for the open session and for each person to speak.

Council is always willing to discuss topics proposed by members of the public; your Parish Councillors are here for you so please share your thoughts and ideas. As each agenda is prepared a week in advance (to be legal it has to be publicised for at least six days), you will need to advise your topic (to the Clerk) at least eight days before a meeting.

Whilst you are welcome to raise a point that does not relate to an item on that evening’s agenda, Council’s discussion might need to be deferred (to allow a specific item to be included on a future agenda) in order to ensure any decision taken will be binding in law.

Annual Parish Meeting

The Annual Parish Meeting provides you with an opportunity to engage with your Parish Council and to receive updates from other village groups including the Buckland village charity. Each year, the meeting includes a short refreshment break, providing an opportunity to say hello to anyone you have not met before and to enjoy a “catch up” with local residents you already know.

The 2017 Annual Parish Meeting was held at 7.30pm on Monday 20th March 2017 in the Reading Room, Old Road, Buckland and draft minutes are available to download via a link further down this page.
