About Council Meetings

IMPORTANT:
Until the coronavirus situation is under control, Parish Council meetings will be conducted by Zoom video conferencing, email and telephone . Please contact the Clerk if you wish to bring any issue to the attention of the Parish Council

Monthly Meetings

The council normally holds ten meetings a year, on the second or third Thursday of each month, except for July and December. You can see this year’s schedule of meetings together with the Agendas and Minutes from previous meetings which are available in (.pdf) format.

Members of the public are welcome to attend council meetings. Heath Charnock Parish Council follows the procedures adopted by Chorley Council for public participation in meetings.

Members of the public may ask questions during a separate session prior to the ordinary business of the Parish Council. This session will last for a maximum of 30 minutes. Questions must be submitted by 12 noon, two days prior to each meeting, to allow sufficient time for members to investigate and prepare responses. Questions should be forwarded to the Parish Clerk.

Annual Meetings

In addition, each year in May, there is an Annual Parish Meeting, which provides an opportunity for residents of Heath Charnock to get together to discuss any concerns they have regarding life in the parish.

The meeting is normally chaired by the Chairman of the Parish Council, and any resident can raise any relevant issues.

After the meeting any areas of concern will be brought to the attention of the Parish Council, for discussion at a future council meeting.

The meeting will be followed by the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Parish Council, and a normal Parish Council meeting.

All meetings are held at the Adlington Community Centre, Railway Road, Adlington and usually commence at 7:30 pm.

Agendas are produced for each meeting along with the Minutes. The main page provides links to the Agenda and Minutes for each meeting when they become available.
