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 (not currently), commencing at 7pm and are open to the public and all are welcome.
The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 lapsed as of 7 May 2021.
Due to Covid-19 this is not a formal Parish Council Meeting. As the Meeting is not taking place under the LGA 1972 Act Parish Councillors are therefore not summoned. No apologies from non-participating Councillors need to be accepted.
Items on the Agenda requiring a Parish Council decision at this meeting are Councillor recommendations made to the Parish Clerk. The decisions will be made by the Clerk under the approved Clerk’s Scheme of Delegated Authority using emergency delegated powers granted under Minute ref 21.069 (4th May).

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.
Below you will see the Standing Orders for Cononley Parish Council.
