Parish Council Meetings

Buckland Parish Council meetings are held in the Reading Room, Old Road, Buckland.  The next meeting is scheduled for 8pm on Monday 14th January 2019.

When the Parish Council last met an application from Shell UK (MO/2018/1848) to redevelop the shop at Buckland garage was discussed – click here to link to the application documents on the MVDC website that includes two responses submitted by the Parish Council.

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 2018 Annual Parish Meeting was held at 7.45pm on Monday 19th March 2018 in the Reading Room, Old Road and a copy of the minutes is available to download (scroll down).


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.
