(Please note this is a standard code for all Parish Council meetings)

Residents are welcome to attend the meetings of the Parish Council to witness their Councillors exercising their duties and responsibilities though please be aware that aside from 10 minutes at the start of our Full Parish meetings, or unless commenting on a planning application at a planning meeting, the public are present for observation only (i.e. like the Strangers Gallery in the House of Commons) If you would like to participate in the public session it is recommended that you email questions in advance.

The main monthly Parish Council Meetings are normally held on the third Thursday of every month, except August and December. Meetings are held in the Parish Council Offices, Market Green, Cottingham (unless stated otherwise on the Agenda). Monthly Planning Meetings are normally held on the first Tuesday of the month including August and December

In May the Parish Council holds two meetings back-to-back.

Firstly, there is the Annual Parish Meeting. If the Chair of the Parish Council is present, then they normally chair this meeting and give an overview of things that have happened in Cottingham since the previous May and the work of the Parish Council. There is then an opportunity for Parishioners to ask questions to the Parish Council. This is similar to the public session in our monthly meetings, only slightly longer (consequently there is no public session in the second meeting)

The second meeting in the Annual Council Meeting. This is much the same as a normal monthly meeting but with some additional administration to deal with.

Extra-ordinary meetings and meetings of Committees are sometimes arranged, when required, and details of these meetings will be given separately.

Surgeries can be arranged to enable anyone to come to talk to Councillors in private should they feel the need to do so.
