Parish council meetings are generally held in Astbury Village Hall, starting at 7:30pm, on the second Wednesday of each month. There is usually no meeting in December.
The meeting in May is usually the Annual Parish Council meeting, at which the Chairman and Vice Chairman are elected for the following twelve months, and other necessary business (such as approval of the audit) is undertaken as well as the usual meeting agenda.
The other meeting is the Annual Parishes Meeting which, although usually chaired by the parish council chairman, is not a parish council meeting — it is a meeting of the parishes’ electors and is an opportunity to debate any current issue of interest in the community.
Until recently, legislation has enabled meetings to take place on Zoom. This legislation lapsed on 7 May 2021 and meetings must again take place in person, and meetings will again be held in the Village Hall.
In order to maintain social distancing during the Covid-19 emergency, numbers will be limited to thirty (30). To ensure the safety of those attending while the Covid-19 crisis lasts, the parish council has made a full risk assessment.
