- Filming of Meetings

- Declarations of Interest
With the introduction of the Localism Bill 2011, there have been changes to the Declarations of Interest options that Councillors must announce before the relevant item of the Agenda - follow this link to see an explanation.
- Attending Meetings - can I join in?
Attending Parish Council meetings can be confusing - here is a document that explains how residents can take part in the meeting.
- Draft Minutes
The Parish Council publishes its minutes after they have been ratified, however in the spirit of openness and transparency, draft minutes are posted here (download when link is activated) so that residents can have prior knowledge before the next meeting; they are usually posted within 3 working days of the meeting and are subject to word changes (if necessary). Ratified minutes can be found by looking at the "meetings" page within this website.

Here are the archived agenda, minutes and reports (as supplied)

(NB. Please note that written reports from Councillors are not always given for every meeting; in this instance the only report available for that month will be from North Yorkshire Police).
|May - Annual/Ordinary||Annual/Ordinary||Annual/Ordinary||Reports|
Every Parish Council meeting, North Yorkshire Police send a full report of crime incidents for the previous month. An Officer attends the meeting (depending on duties) to discuss local crime trends, crime reduction initiatives or Road Operations; there is also the opportunity to ask questions of the Police on matters raised. Copies of their reports can be found above (amalgamated with other reports above).
The non-emergency number to call for North Yorkshire Police is 101 (calls will be charged at 15p regardless of the length of call).
