The when & where for Parish council Meetings?

Parish Council Meetings

The Parish Council has 8 members and is elected every four years. The last election was in 2015. Those interested in serving on the Parish Council are particularly welcome to attend meetings, and should ask the Clerk for advice on election procedures.

The Council normally meets in Hawkley Village Hall at 7.30pm on a Wednesday in January, in April (this meeting includes the annual Parish Meeting when the Council reports back on the activities for the previous year), in May, when officers and committees are elected for the following year, in August and November.

The times and the agenda of each meeting are posted here and on the notice boards at Upper and Lower Green Hawkley and by the old Post Office in Empshott and at Grange Farm Empshott about a week before the meeting.

Parishioners are welcome to attend any meeting, and councillors welcome any comments or concerns to be raised before the meeting in time to put on the agenda or after the meeting.

The District and County Councillors try to attend Council Meetings.

The Council employs a part-time Clerk to deal with all correspondence, take minutes, and execute Council decisions; the clerk is also the Responsible Financial Officer (RFO).
