An Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting of the people of the parish. The meeting consists of the local government electors of a parish and the purpose of the meeting is to discuss parish affairs. There is no statutory definition or case law to determine what constitutes a “parish affair”. This could be any local issue, activity, subject matter which specifically affects a particular parish and which a parish meeting may wish to discuss, debate and potentially influence. It would exclude matters which affect all parishes in the country equally. It is an effective forum for parish councils to engage with the local electorate, and to hear and take account of local residents’ views.
