Please Note: The regular Parish Council & Parish Charity Meetings will now be taking place on the previously announced dates, but due to the COVID-19 emergency will be “virtual” meetings over Zoom. These will be starting at 3pm and not the usual 7pm. In addition there may be Extraordinary Parish Council meetings as required. Please keep an eye on www.yaxham.com and Parish Council notice boards for agendas and meeting notices.
If as a resident of Yaxham you wish to join one of the “virtual” Parish Council meetings over Zoom, or for further information, then please email the Clerk at email@example.com.
Full Parish Council Meetings are held at monthly usually on the 4th Thursday, with the exception of August and December when a meeting will not take place. Extraordinary Parish Council Meetings may be called under the Standing Orders at any time if there is a pressing planning application or other issue that needs addressing before the next planned Full Parish Council Meeting.
All meetings, unless advised otherwise, commence at 7.00pm and are held in the David Myhill Room at the back of the Village Hall in Jubilee Park, Yaxham
. Any member of the public is welcome to come along and hear discussion about current issues or you may speak about any parish matter during the public session that is held at the beginning of each meeting.
The public and press are always very welcome to attend/join each meeting of the Parish Council, although they may be asked to leave if a confidential matter needs to be considered.
In May every year the Annual Parish Meeting is held. All parishioners are invited to attend. This is your Meeting at which you may ask the Parish Council to arrange for a speaker on a particular subject of interest to the village, discuss matters that concern you and hear what your Council has achieved during the past year. However the 2020 meeting on 28th May is CANCELLED.
If you are unable to attend/join a meeting but would like a matter discussed, please contact the Parish Clerk at least 7 days prior to the advertised date for the meeting with the details.
In the event that a meeting is cancelled, notices will be placed on the Parish Council noticeboards and the Yaxham website on the Sunday prior to the scheduled meeting.
