The main monthly Parish Council Meetings are 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). The dates of Planning Meetings vary depending on applications received.
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 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.
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.
