Meetings since Covid:
On the 11th of March 2020 the World Health Organization declared a Global Pandemic and within the space of just one month life as we once knew it has changed (possibly forever). The Parish Council was for a while unable to hold meetings, then the Government passed new legislation that enabled all local councils to meet using remote technology. At Milborne Port the Planning & Environment Committee lead the way and after a few months there was enough confidence and familiarisation with the videoconferencing technology that a Full Council meeting was called in June.
However, it is fair to say that the majority of the council membership do not enjoy using or attending the remote meetings and we of course all hope that it will be safe to return to in-person meeting as soon as possible. In the meantime meetings will remain remote and will only be called if required. This will mean less meetings overall. Information on how to join the meetings can be found on the agendas, or by emailing the Clerk.
We would ask for some patience and understanding during this time. Things are not normal and this effects people in different ways at different points of time. While some may feel that things should carry on as normal, that fact is things are far from the normal we once knew and the adjustment to that will take time.
- The Full Council meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 19:00 when there is business to conduct.
- The Planning & Environment Committee meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 18:455
- The Management Committee meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month when there is business to conduct.
All the paperwork that is available to the Councillors is also posted onto the agendas / minutes page for that committee. Agendas are posted into the website 5 days before the meeting takes place, minutes are posted 28 days after the meeting has taken place. Please be aware that the start times of meetings are subject to change this will be recorded on the agenda, so please check.
All meetings are open for parishioners to attend and up to fifteen minutes is made available at the beginning of each meeting for members of the public to ask questions or make comments on any matter of interest or concern. Copies of minutes are posted on to this website to download.
