Sourton Parish Council
A civil parish at the heart of beautiful Devon

Council meetings

Parish Council Meetings are usually held on the first Monday of the month. Any changes to this will be notified on the local info/news page. Members of the public are invited to use the public participation time at the beginning of the meeting to raise any issues or comment on items on the agenda. If a member of the public would like a matter to be put on the agenda for discussion, they can do so by writing to the clerk or the chairman a minimum of 5 days in advance of the meeting.

The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting of the parish electorate held between 1st May and the 1st June. It is not a council meeting, but the parish council chairman will call the meeting and chair it if he/she is present. There is no set format for this meeting, but it may for instance include the parish council's annual report, public comment on the council's performance or suggestions for future actions. A speaker on local matters of interest is often invited. If a vote on any matter is called for, all electorate present have a vote.

The Annual Parish Council Meeting is the meeting in which the Chairman, Vice-Chairman and any other Officers are elected. The financial officer will give a report for the year.

Planning Meetings may be called between ordinary meetings when it is necessary to submit comments on applications to West Devon Borough Council or Dartmoor National Park Authority before the date of the next ordinary meeting.

All meetings will be advertised on the website and on the parish notice board on Sourton Village Green at least 3 working days in advance.

The next council meetings will be held on Monday 5th February  at 7pm
