Hemswell Parish Council aims to -

Provide services for the parishioners of, and manage and maintain the assets of, the village of Hemswell, within the resources provided by the annual precept and other incomes, taking into account the wishes of the residents while obtaining value for money.

Hemswell Parish Council meet on the third Monday of January, March, May, July, September and November. Meetings are held at 7:00 pm in the Hemswell and Harpswell Village Hall. Occasionally, there are additional 'extraordinary' meetings to discuss items of an urgent nature between the scheduled meetings. Our Annual Meeting of the Parish Council is held in May. A separate Annual Meeting of the Parish is held just once a year, usually in March or immediately before the Annual Parish Council meeting in May. 

Meeting dates and agendas are published on this website and on the village notice boards located at the village hall and on Brook Street. Soon after each meeting, you'll find the draft minutes published on this website and on the village notice boards. 

Residents are welcome to attend full council meetings and can speak briefly on village matters at the beginning of the meeting in public question time. Items not on the agenda for that evening's meeting can't be discussed in detail, but if you want to discuss a particular topic, it may be added to the agenda for the following meeting or dealt with in writing.
