West Alvington Parish Council
The clerk's agenda for the next parish council meeting will be published here and on the parish notice boards shortly before the date of the next meeting which is on 4th July at 7.00pm

PLEASE NOTE: This is likely to be a shorter than usual meeting.

For those who do not have experience of rural Parish Councils the July and August period is deliberately kept clear of other than very urgent business and no meetings or events of a Parish nature are usually organised to take place during this period. This is traditionally kept clear because many local people are heavily involved in local holiday and letting businesses at this time.

The proposed meeting Agenda in July will be to deal with urgent business which our clerk (who is the responsible Parish Council officer) feels cannot properly wait until our September meeting.

If you have something urgent you think needs to be considered before September please let our clerk know of your concern.

Likely items:

Langworthys planning application
Any feedback on S 106 money utilisation from Homefield
Village tidy up work party
