Stondon Parish Council Meeting - Febuary @ Stondon Baptist Church Hall Meeting room

This meeting is open to members of the public and press to attend.

We will be discussing planning applications, local community issues and local concerns (normally in that order).

The law gives members of the public the right to attend and observe but not to speak. The Council provides an opportunity near the start of the meeting for the public to raise a question either relating to an agenda item, or potentially to be considered at a future meeting. This is limited to 10 minutes in total and a maximum of three minutes per subject. The rest of the meeting we ask you to remain quiet and only during specific items, you might be invited to speak by the Chairman. Please note Chairman or Vice-Chairman is used as an official title and not intended to be gender specific

The Parish Council does have items it needs to make decisions on and asks anyone attending to respect this. Agendas and other information are available from the Documents area of the website or via the Clerk.

On-line or hybrid Council meetings – where held or made available

As a member of the public you are welcome to join a Council meeting this might be made available to you using a range of devices such as a laptop computer, desktop computer, tablet or phone (Apple or Android devices). There is greater detail available here, including meetings to test your equipment (recommended).

The meeting invite or meeting ID is displayed on the page with the agenda. When joining a Zoom meeting you are likely to be asked to download and install a small app or program to make best use of the resources on your equipment. It may ask for permission to use your microphone and camera. This is needed to allow you to interact and speak at the relevant sections of the meeting.

When you have joined the meeting, you will be held in a “Waiting room” and the Clerk or Chairman will let you in once the meeting commences. Please leave your microphone muted unless asked to do otherwise. You do not have to use your camera unless you wish to, but it may help you to be understood.   If you plan to use your camera, have the right seating position to show your whole face. It is worth checking your immediate environment in the same way you would if inviting people to visit you home. Remember you are on candid camera.

Please note meetings WILL be recorded and anyone who behaves in an offensive manner is likely to be reported to relevant authorities and the content shared with those authorities. They will also be removed from the meeting. The recording will be held long enough to confirm the minutes and will then be destroyed. The recordings will not be distributed except in the above circumstances. Remember that a parish council meeting is by law “a meeting held in public”, not a “public meeting”.  The law gives members of the public the right to attend and observe but not to speak. The Council provides an opportunity near the start of the meeting for the public to raise a question either relating to an agenda item, or potentially to be considered at a future meeting. This is limited to 10 minutes in total and a maximum of three minutes per subject. The rest of the meeting you are likely to remain muted and only during specific items, you might be invited to speak by the Chairman. Please note Chairman or Vice-Chairman is used as an official title and not intended to be gender specific.

On-line meetings or hybrid versions will be at the discretion of the Council.
