Cheverell Magna Parish Council sits on the first Monday of each month.
Meetings are held at 7.30pm in the Pavillion and all parishioners are welcome to attend.
If a meeting falls on a Bank Holiday, the meeting is held on the following Monday.
There are seven Councillors and a Parish Clerk. They are usually elected but can be co-opted if a particular seat is uncontested.
Any Councillors who have a personal or prejudicial interest must declare it at the meeting and then may not contribute in any way to the discussion or vote.
Code of Conduct
The council operates within a Code of Conduct. This and other policies can be seen by clicking the links above.
Villagers are welcome to attend all meetings, however, only councillors are permitted to speak during the meeting. This is a legal requirement.
Before the meeting is opened, an Open Forum is held. If you have matters that concern you, this is your opportunity to speak to the council. However, it would be useful if the Clerk could be given prior notice of the issue you wish to raise.
If it is an Agenda item, for instance you have a Planning Application, the Chair may agree to close the meeting to enable you to speak, after which the meeting will be reopened and resume.
