Parish Council Meeting Dates
Hemswell Parish Council meet on the third Monday of January, March, May, July, September & November. Meetings are held at 7:00 pm in the Hemswell and Harpswell Village Hall. The Annual Meeting of the Parish Council is always held in May.
The date and agenda for each meeting are available on this website and displayed on the village notice boards (Village Hall and Brook Street), at least three clear days before each meeting. The 'unadopted' (draft) minutes from each meeting are posted to this website and displayed on the noticeboards once they have been written and approved for display.
The Annual Meeting of the Parish is separate from the parish council meeting and only happens once a year, usually in March. It is a meeting open to all electors of the Parish, who have the right not only to attend but also to speak on any matter of local interest. At the meeting, the parish council will report on events of the preceding year, and there may be reports from the Chairman, District and County Councillors, community groups and any organisation that the parish council has funded during the year. More importantly, it's the opportunity for local residents to share their views on how the council is performing.
