About the Council
3rd July 2023 | 4th September 2023
The Council meets on a bi-monthly basis in Walton Village Hall to discuss and manage its areas of responsibility.
These are open, public meetings to which any resident may attend. As Parish Councils are a tier of local government, meetings must operate in a legal manner. This means that public attendees must follow some guidelines.
- They must arrive before the scheduled start time.
- They must sit in seating set out for public attendees.
- They cannot interrupt conversation or official discussion unless invited to contribute.
- They can only propose or ask questions in the public discussion prior to the meeting which may last up to 10 minutes.
If you do not wish to attend meetings but would still like to be kept updated on council matters, detailed Minutes are published on this website and also displayed on the Parish Council noticeboard.
Please note that meetings will be held on Monday evenings in the Village Hall at Walton at 7.30pm. As with any community, the more that are involved, the stronger and faster our vision is achieved and your council welcomes all feedback and involvement from Walton Village.
If you would like to discuss current issues within the parish, raise a separate topic or simply get a better understanding of what the Parish Council does, you are welcome to attend any of the scheduled meetings. If possible, please contact the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org before the meeting if you wish to make a representation.
