About Parish Council meetings
All Parish Councils are required to hold at least four meetings each year which are open to the public, one meeting must be an Annual Meeting of the full Council.
Westcott Parish Council meets around every six weeks, the dates of all the meetings for the upcoming year are published annually in May.
Once a year a ‘Parish Meeting’ takes place between 1 March and 1 June (see list of meetings above for date of the next one). These meetings are open to the public but only the registered electors for the Parish are permitted to speak and vote on any proposal. A Parish Meeting is not a corporate body and is therefore unable to own property or sue or be sued. Generally speaking it is not a local authority and its powers are not as wide as those of a Parish Council.
