What is the Annual Parish Meeting?

The Annual Parish Meeting is intended as an annual meeting of all of the residents of the parish, to discuss anything those residents wish to discuss. Holding one is a legal requirement, but Kettleburgh has a good record of the meeting being a useful forum for residents. It is customarily run, as a matter of convenience, by the Parish Council Chair and Clerk.  But it is NOT a Parish Council meeting - it is your meeting.

For some time the meeting was known as the Kettleburgh Residents' Meeting because of concern that the legal title was not clear and in the hope that the name change would encourage greater attendance. As there is a legal requirement to hold the meeting it was known in official documents as the Kettleburgh Residents' Meeting/Annual Parish Meeting.  Attendance did not notably increase, so the Parish Council took the decision in 2019 to revert to the standard title.

Please note that the latest minutes are always in draft form because they are not approved until the next meeting. Minutes may still be titled 'draft' in the entries below, but the links should take you to the version approved by the subsequent meeting.
