What is the Annual Parish Assembly?
The Annual Parish Assembly of a Parish Council is often referred to as the Parish Meeting. It is a feature unique to Parish and Town Councils as it must be held by law each year (Local Government Act (LGA) 1972 Schedule (Sch.) 12 section 14 (1)).
It should not be confused with the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of a Parish Council. The AGM is a Council Meeting and the occasion when the Parish Council and only the members of the Parish Council, elect their Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and representatives to Sub-Committees and outside bodies (such as School Governors, Village Hall Committees) for the year ahead.
