Parish Council Meetings Now Restarting


All being well the plan is to recommence Parish Council Meetings with effect from Wednesday 2 September 2020 at 7.15pm in the Annex.

Following discussions with the Village Hall committee, to comply with Covid 19 regulations, anyone wishing to raise a matter within the Public Participation section, must first of all contact the Clerk at to inform of the subject they wish to discuss and they will then be given a time slot.  Only one member of the public at any one time will be allowed into the Annex when the meeting is in progress.

These instructions will be added to the Agendas which are placed on the notice boards outside the Village Hall and the PC Noticeboard by the Summer Seat and also on the PC website.  PPE will be provided at the Annex door.



Please note that the Parish Council Office in the Village Hall, West Street will be closed to the public until further notice, due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The regular monthly meetings in the Village Hall Annex have also been suspended until further notice.

The Clerk will continue to work her normal office hours, albeit remotely when required, to review emails, post and any voicemails left on the office telephone. If you have any issues which would have been covered under the Public Participation part of the meeting please raise them with the Clerk.

It should be stressed that the usual day to day activities of the council will carry on as normal. We will continue to answer all queries, comment on new planning applications etc as per the current agenda. We will also gather our usual Craven District, North Yorkshire County Council and Police reports for review.

We will be doing a regular report based on the current minutes format to keep people aware of progress on the various agenda items.
