Parish Council Meetings
2021 Meetings and Information
Parish Council meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month unless an alternative date has been set. There is no meeting during August.
The meetings are held in the village Institute, commencing at 7pm and are open to the public and all are welcome.
Due to the current situation with COVD-19, all some meetings are being held remotely as Delegated Meetings with only essential business being conducted. Contact the Clerk on: email@example.com for the password and link to join the meeting remotely via the Zoom Platform or see the Village Noticeboard.
The Annual Parish Meeting is not a council meeting. Rather it is a meeting of the parish electors which in Cononley, is held annually on the second Tuesday in March following the Cononley Parish Council meeting.
The Chairman of the Parish Council calls the Annual Parish Meeting and electors can contribute to the agenda. In practice, these meetings often celebrate local activities and debate current issues in the community.
The Chairman of the Parish Council will chair the meeting.
Notice of the Annual Village Meeting is given 7 days before on the Parish Council website, the village notice board, in the village newsletter (copy times permitting) and on the Cononley Parish Council Facebook page.

There are rules called Standing Orders, which govern the conduct and procedure of Parish Council meetings. The Parish Council is required by law to have them. The Standing Orders are agreed by the Parish Council and assist the Chairman in managing the meeting by establishing such things as the regular agenda items, the length of time a councillor can speak on an issue or even the length of the meeting and/or its finishing time.
