Standing Orders & Meeting Protocols

The Parish Council’s Standing Orders (reviewed Jan-2012) 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
