Parish meeting

Please see a message from Rowsley Parish Council. Local residents are very welcome to attend this important community meeting.


Dear local resident,


Each year there is a legal requirement to hold a Parish Meeting.  This year the date of the Parish Meeting is on Monday 23rd April at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.  


What is a Parish Meeting?

Every English Parish must have a Parish Meeting (Local Government Act 1972, s13(1)) This meeting consists of the local government electors registered for the area for which it is held i.e. all those who have a right to vote. The meeting must be held each year between 1st March and 1st June (incl.) and must be after 6pm in the evening!  So that’s the law…..


What is a Parish Meeting Like?

It is an opportunity for the Parish Council and organisations and charities within the village to report on their activities during the year and to work together to improve the community in which they live and work. It has also been an opportunity for residents to ask questions and provide feedback to all those groups.


Best wishes,




Sarah Porter

Rowsley Parish Council Clerk
