Additional Parish Councillor?

Comments Off on Additional Parish Councillor?

The Parish Council is currently limited to five members with a quorum of three needed to hold meetings. This can cause difficulties sometimes, especially if we’re short of a councillor anyway, and the Council is looking into increasing its number to at least six to help ease this problem (the quorum is 1/3 of the total so would stay at three). There’s no guarantee that SDC will allow this, but the first step is to obtain signatures from at least 135 residents in support of the change – so be prepared to be accosted for your autograph by Parish Councillors in the coming weeks and please sign up.
