Parish Council Meeting Dates

We continue to follow the changes in guidance around meetings and Coronavirus and have therefore made the decision to postpone our meeting in September.  We hope to meet instead on 20th October, should we be allowed at that time.  Thank you for your understanding.  

Below is a list of Tunstead and Sco Ruston Parish Council meeting dates. The public are welcome to attend. There is a public forum before the meeting starts at 7.30pm for half an hour.

It is at this point members of the public can express concerns, offer praise and feed-back to the council on any matter that is within the council’s remit. Once the public participation element is closed, the council meeting starts. The public are welcome to stay on and observe the meeting. This way the council conduct their business in public.

From 8.00pm onward, the council meeting is not a public meeting; there is no requirement for the public to be given the opportunity to question the council. However, the chairman may invite members of the public to provide information on an item.

All meetings take place in the Portakabin® on the recreation ground.

Annual Parish Meeting

This is a meeting of local government electors for the parish.  It is not a parish council meeting, and whilst members of the public can attend, only registered electors of the parish may speak and vote. The purpose of the meeting is to enable the parish council to explain what it has done over the past year. It also enables electors to have a say on matters they feel affect the parish.

Location and time

All the meetings listed above take place in the Tunstead Modular Building – Tunstead Recreation Ground, Market Street. And unless otherwise stated begin at 7:30pm.
