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 (usually in May – next one on 30th April 2019). 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.

A representative from the council  also attends the Waddesdon Local Area Forum meetings. The LAF is run by Bucks County Council for Parish Councils. Parish Councils from around the Waddesdon ward attend to discuss issues in common or share council experiences/strategies and bid for grants to help run projects across the area. Meetings take place quarterly and are chaired by the County Councillor, Paul Irwin.
