The Parish Council usually meets on the 3rd Monday of the month. Meetings are not usually held during August or December. Further to requests from residents, meetings alternate between Woodplumpton and Catforth.
Meeting dates for 2018/2019 are as follows:
WOODPLUMPTON Meetings are held in Woodplumpton Parish Room, at the rear of Woodplumpton Parish Church, Woodplumpton Road.
CATFORTH Meetings are held in Catforth School, School Lane, Catforth.
Meetings start at 7.00pm and there is usually a period set aside for public participation where the public or community groups can participate and bring matters to the attention of the Council, seek advice and comment on local issues of interest.
If the Council is required to make a decision or support a scheme, the matter must be included as a specific Agenda item. The Agenda item must explain the matter fully and state what action you want the Council to take. Details must be submitted to the Clerk in writing at least 1 week before the date of the meeting as this is when the Agenda will be printed.
Further guidance is available from the Clerk. The Agenda will be displayed in the Parish Notice Boards and can be accessed on the website link. Meetings are documented and the minutes can be accessed using the links to the left.
Council meetings are formal events with a clear purpose - to make decisions. To ensure meetings run smoothly the Council operates by following set procedures known as Standing Orders.
