Parish Council


Parish Council Meetings:

Etherley Parish Council consists of 11 elected members and meets monthly (except August) usually on the 2nd Thursday of each month. An agenda is published on this website and posted on the Village notice board.

The Agenda includes a 15 minute Public Participation session which allows time is for residents/visitors to raise any queries or concerns they may have.

Meetings are held in the Committee Room of Toft Hill Community Centre unless otherwise stated.

At the discretion of the Chair a meeting date can be changed if necessary.

Each year in May the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council take place.
