East Harptree Parish Council
The Parish Council meets on the third Tuesday of each month in The Theatre, East Harptree. During the pandemic, emergency legislation allowed us to meet virtually via Zoom, but this legislation ended on May 6th. Meetings must now be in person, but the ability to actually hold meetings has been restricted by more general Covid regulations as we came out of lockdown. If you would like more information please contact the parish clerk at email@example.com .
The agenda for the meeting will be published on the Thursday before the meeting, on the village noticeboard and this website. Public participation is limited to 15 minutes.
The next parish council meeting will now be Tuesday September 21st and will be in The Theatre, East Harptree. Due to the continuation of Covid restrictions, the Parish Council had to cancel its June and July meetings, and due to the high number of Covid cases locally at present (July), we have decided to postpone the meeting planned for August 3rd. The September meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 21st, when hopefully it will be safe to meet indoors again and we will be able to continue with our monthly meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of every month.
