Parish Council Meetings
Buckland Parish Council meetings are held in the Reading Room, Old Road, Buckland. The next ordinary meeting is scheduled for 8pm on Monday 13th May 2019 and will be its Annual Meeting.
An extraordinary parish council meeting has been arranged to provide an opportunity to consult with the local community on revisions to a proposal to build a larger store at the Buckland Shell garage. This meeting will begin at 7.30pm on Thursday 25th April 2019 and be held in St Mary the Virgin Church. Buckland.

Your Parish Council welcomes members of the public to observe all its meetings and provides an opportunity to speak during an open session referred to as the “Open Forum”. Members of the public are invited to put questions or draw relevant matters to the Parish Council’s attention. The Chairman will, at the start of the Open Forum, confirm the amount of time available for the open session and for each person to speak.
Your Parish Council is always willing to discuss topics proposed by members of the public and encourages you to share your thoughts and ideas. However, 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 submit any topic you wish to see discussed at the first meeting at which it is raised (to the Clerk) at least eight days before the meeting.
Whilst you are welcome to raise a point that does not relate to an item on that evening’s agenda, Council’s discussion of the item is likely to need to be deferred (to allow a specific item to be included on a future agenda) 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. The Parish Council consults with the local community at the Annual Parish Meeting so do make the time to come along and contribute.
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 2019 Annual Parish Meeting was held on Monday 25th March 2019 in the Reading Room, Old Road. Draft minutes for the recent meeting will be published during early May.
A copy of the agenda for each upcoming meeting is made available to download and is displayed on the Parish Council Notice Board opposite the village shop. To download a copy of the agenda for the meeting to be held on 25th April 2019 please click here.
