The role of the parish council

Laxfield Parish Council is made up of 11 councillors. There are ten full meetings during the year (no meeting in August and December), held on the second Monday in the month.Additional extraordinary meetings may be held to deal with a specific item of urgent business if agreed by the chairman and vice-chairman. The finance committee meets every December.
All members of the public and press are welcome to attend all meetings of the council and its committees and sub-committees. The members of the parish council elect a chairman, whose role is to ensure a fair and adequate hearing of the views present and at the same time to restrict the discussion to consideration of the business in hand.
The parish council acts strictly within statutory boundaries and strives at all times to retain public confidence.
The Annual Parish Meeting is organised by the parish council and chaired by its chairman. It is always held in May and exists to allow all parishioners to attend and ask any questions or bring up any matters relating to the village.
