Parish Council

council mtg 01 tnParish Council meetings are normally held at 1930 in the Parish Room, Romsey Road, Lockerley (just along from the church) on Monday evenings. All parishioners are welcome to attend the meetings.  Those attending are not usually accorded the privilege of contributing or debating with in a meeting unless so invited.  A parishioner is simply someone who lives within the parish and it does not signify or require adherence to any faith. Voting rights with respect to the Parish Council are simply determined by appeaance on the Electoral Roll and this is maintained by TVBC and thus Hampshire County Council. Do look out for the occasional extraordinary meeting which will be advertised in parish notices and, if we have sufficient advance notice, in the diary on this site.  The Parish Council should not be confused with the ecclesiastical institution called the Parish Church Council; they are separate entities with distinct plebiscites.

In addition to their general role as councillors the elected members of the Parish Council are allotted specific resposnibilities - for example, foot paths, hedgerows and ditches, civil issues, comments on planning permissions, road markings and so on.  From time to time the Parish Council organises also events which reflect a community interest. The NALC model standing orders for councils can be read here (click for PDF document)

Each quarter the Parish Council publishes the Lockerley Parishioner - a newsletter about issues which have been tackled by the council over the past three months.  The minutes of parish council meetings can be found under the menu for the parish council.  If you have an issue which should be raised at a meeting of the Parish Council you sould use the contact form below and set out the issue.  The message will be lodged with the clerk to the Parish Council.
