Minster Parish Council
Welcome to our new website, we hope you find the information available to be helpful. There is a calendar showing Council Meetings etc at the foot of this page.
'Full Council' meetings are normally held on the first Tuesday in the month, at 7pm in the Neighbourhood Centre, except for January when it is always the second Tuesday and there are no meetings in August.
The public are welcome to attend, but cannot speak during the meeting, however if you wish to speak on an agenda item then you must request the Clerk or the Chairman before the start of the meeting, and if deemed appropriate, the Chairman will adjourn the meeting when that item is reached in the agenda. At ‘Full Council’ meetings there is a 15 minute session allowed at the end of formal business for questions from members of the public.
Entry to the Neighbourhood Centre, for evening meetings, is via the side door. Meeting Agendas are displayed on the Council’s glass panelled noticeboard in Monkton Road Car Park.
You can view all available public documents including Council Agendas, Minutes and planning applications at the Parish Office. You can also view burial records for the Cemetery, or make an appointment to speak with a Parish Councillor.
The office is normally manned Monday-Friday 0900-1500 but due to commitments away from the office staff are not always available at these times, so even though you may ‘just drop in’ it is better to telephone first for an appointment.
Access to the office is normally gained through the library, however during times when the library is closed please come around to the side of the building and ring the Neighbourhood Centre bell by the side door.
Please note: The Parish Council is also responsible for bookings at the Recreation Ground Pavilion, Football and Cricket Pitches, the All Weather Pitch and the Multi Use Games Area.
