Standing Orders & Meeting Protocols

The Parish Council’s Standing Orders include rules of procedure laid down in legislation and additional regulations chosen by your council. Standing orders help the council to operate smoothly and determine, for example:
  • the order of business
  • the length of meetings and the duration of speaking time
  • the schedule of meetings for the year
  • delegation to committees and officers
  • voting requirements
  • procedures for public participation
