The Parish Council formally meets every 2 months for a full council meeting and holds extraordinary meetings as and when required. Meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday of the month in Singleton Village Hall starting at 7 pm.
Full Council meetings are where all councillors attend to discuss and debate issues that affect the community. They are called by the Clerk who takes minutes which detail the discussion and the resolutions made. They are open to the general public and time will be allocated to any questions the public may have.
The Annual Parish Meeting is not a council meeting. It is a meeting of the parish electors and takes place between 1 March and 1 June. Electors can contribute to the agenda and in practice these meetings celebrate local activities and debate current issues in the community. The chairman of the council, any two councillors or any six electors can call the Annual Parish Meeting.
The Annual Council Meeting is like an AGM and where the Parish Council elects a chairman and a vice-chairman (although this isn't mandatory), and decide which councillors will lead on particular areas such as planing or playground maintenance.
Agendas are posted on the notice boards (by the pond in Singleton and by the phone box in Charlton) a minimum of 3 days before any meetings. They are also available to download from the drop-down menu above.
Draft Minutes are too long to be posted on the notice boards but they are available to download from the drop-down menu above.
