Meetings

Parish Council meetings are normally held on the first Thursday of the month (except for May each year) at 7.30 pm at Burton Village Hall in Highburton.  However, all meetings are currently postponed due to the Coronavirus.  A decision on whether or not it is possible to hold the two Annual Meetings will be taken nearer the time, taking into account the situation and advice available by then.  If it is possible to hold them, they will take place at The Hub, Riley Lane, Kirkburton.

There are also a number of Committees, which meet on a varying level of frequency, normally on a Thursday evening.  The dates will be posted below when they have been agreed.  They are held at the Village Hall and usually start at 7.30 pm, unless there is more than one meeting on the same evening.  Please see the agenda (when published) for full details of the starting time.

The agendas will be available from links below around 4 - 6 days before the meeting. Council agendas are also put up on the various noticeboards and in libraries across the Parish. Council and Committee agendas are on display at Burton Village Hall.  Draft minutes are issued to the 3 libraries in the Parish at the same time as the agenda for the following Council meeting is produced.  They can be requested from the Clerk.  The Council agenda and minutes are also issued electronically to those on the e-mailing list.  If you would like to be included in the circulation, please email the Clerk with your email address.  The confirmed Council and Committee minutes are uploaded to the website after they have been approved at the following Council meeting. 

All meetings are open to the public and have a session at the start when members of the public can speak on any issues included in the Council / Committee remit. 

Disabled Facilities at the Village Hall

Access: Council meetings are held in the main hall, which is fully accessible to people with mobility problems and wheelchair users.  Committee meetings are normally held in one of the smaller rooms.  If you have mobility problems or are a wheelchair user and you would like to attend a committee meeting, please let us know in advance so that we can ensure that is held in a room which is fully accessible.  Although it is usually possible to make adjustments on the evening, if necessary.

Parking: There is a limited number of parking spaces around the village hall.  If you give us advance notice, we could arrange a parking space close to the entrance.
