Cononley Parish Council generally meets on the second Tuesday of the month, but with some exceptions in July/August.
Items for inclusion on the agenda must be received by the Clerk at least 8 days before the meeting. The Council is unable to take decisions on any matter which is not previously included on the agenda, but may discuss urgent last-minute items at the discretion of the Chairman.
Public Participation in Parish Council meetings: The public have a right to speak at parish council meetings on matters directly affecting the parish. A maximum of 15 minutes is allowed for this and therefore individual contributions should not exceed 3 minutes. Precedence will be given to those who have written to the Council or who otherwise have given notice before the meeting.
Decision making. Please note that [in most cases] for action to actually be taken on an issue it will require that a parish councillor proposes that the matter is placed on a future agenda for a decision.
Information about the Council. A new publication scheme has been adopted and implemented as from 1st Jan. 2009. To accompany this scheme the Council has also agreed the publication of ‘a statement of pro-actively published information’ which lists available information, how to obtain it and whether or not any charge will be made. Enquiries should be made to the Clerk.
