Further changes of Medbourne Parish Councillors - June 2021 update

Following the second formal notice of a Councillor vacancy on the Parish Council, the May meeting of the Council agreed to co-opt James Oakes to this vacancy with immediate effect.

Shortly after this meeting, as was agreed, Councillor Gidley-Wright tendered his own resignation. A formal notice of this vacancy can now be read on the Council's public notice board, and a copy of the notice is available to be downloaded here.

Any interest in the vacancy should  be addressed to the Parish Clerk on pcmedbourne@gmail.com

An 'expression of interest' in the previous Notice of Vacancy had also been submitted by Sam Ryall. In accepting the interest first submitted by James Oakes, the May meeting of the Council agreed to consider Sam for co-option into the new vacancy during the Council's next meeting in July, should no other interest be received in the new vacancy and providing no election has been requested by the required number of constituents. Councillors will confirm this position in the required and appropriate way in July.

Annual Meetings 2021 - Monday 3 May 2021

The programmed meetings of both the 2021 Annual Parish Meeting and the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Parish Council are scheduled to take place on Monday 3 May 2021.

The Parish Council is aware that this date is a 'Bank Holiday'. Following consideration of this matter, Councillors have agreed that the meetings should continue to be held on this date, as this is the last week when it is permissible to hold public meetings via Zoom or similar 'distanced' networks, before Government restrictions are changed and all Councils will be obliged to arrange for holding future meetings in person, on a face-to-face basis. The particular impact of this matter is that the 'annual' meetings must take place during the month of May.

It is intended that the first meeting on 3 May 2021 will now commence at 7.00pm (a slight change from previous information). Following the completion of the two 'annual' meetings, there will also be the May meeting of the Parish Council held in the second half of the same evening.

Further details and agendas will be forthcoming in due course.

Martin Field,
Parish Clerk
