Aveton Gifford Parish Council

COVID-19 UPDATE; Because of the restrictions imposed by the UK Government during the Coronavirus pandemic, the parish council was unable to use the hall or meet in person , and was given leave to conduct the monthly council meetings by alternative means. You will find that the minutes of these meetings are therefore entitled “virtual minutes”. These restrictions also necessitated the cancellation of the Annual Meeting, and the Annual Parish Meeting, usually held in May.

The parish council meets monthly, usually on the first Monday in the month. Meetings are held in the village hall and start at 7.30 pm.

All parishioners are most welcome to attend, however all meetings have to be formally conducted; if you wish to raise a point or speak at a meeting it will be necessary to notify the Clerk before the meeting  (contact details below).

Agenda and minutes of meetings are posted on www.aveton-gifford.co.uk  and the notice boards opposite the school, at Icy Park and Bridge End and in the Fisherman’s Rest.

Every year in May the parish holds its Annual Meetings. The Annual Meeting of the Council is a shortened parish council meeting with a reduced agenda for business; this is the meeting at which all councillors are elected to the statutory positions for the year, ie. Chair, Vice Chair and sub-committees, and the representatives for tree warden, village hall, Parish Paths Partnership and digital communication representatives are also confirmed. After this the Annual Parish Meeting follows. It is not a parish council meeting, although for convenience it is chaired by the PC chairman; every organisation within the parish, for example the cricket club, allotment holders, the WI, the village hall and heritage group, also the school, the Hive, St Andrew’s PCC and representatives of public bodies like the police can give their report to the public on the year’s events. The meeting, like all the parish council meetings throughout the year, is open to all parishioners, and is their chance to find out more about what goes on in the parish.

Parish Council official documents

In the interests of transparency, the parish council must make policies and documents available to public view. These cover all aspects governing council regulations and procedures, including the annual audits, data protection, freedom of information, and Health & Safety assessments for the parish council acting as the operators for running the swimming pool.
