About the Parish Council

Welcome to the Hutton Buscel Parish Council section of the village website.

The Parish Council meets monthly except in August and December – usually on the first Monday evening in the village hall. Meetings normally start at 7.30 pm and every resident of the village has the right to attend as an observer.

A short session at the beginning of the meeting is allocated to a public forum where residents can raise issues of concern. Members of the public do not have the right to speak for the rest of the Parish Council meeting unless they are invited.

The cycle of meetings starts in May and continues monthly throughout the year. Agendas are posted on this web site, and on the parish council noticeboard in the bus shelter, at least three working days before meetings and minutes are posted after each meeting.

Councillors are elected for a four year term. If vacancies occur between elections, the council has the power to co-opt new members.

The annual parish assembly – which is not a parish council meeting – takes place in April when everyone in the village is entitled to attend and speak on any subject.
