Copies of past Minutes of Clarborough & Welham Parish Council are currently being uploaded to this site. We hope they prove interesting to those with an historical eye but also aim to further increase the transparency of local politics.
These document begin in 1996 when computerised systems started to be used to record Parish Council business. The first of these sets covers the period September - December, 1996 although the October Minutes of that year are currently lost. It is hoped that all of the intervening period will be available in due course, for the moment the first batch for autumn 1996 are provided together with recent Minutes moved from the ‘current Minutes’ page (Parish Council ► Parish Council Minutes):
The following section, from John Salmon (former Clerk to the Parish Council) explained some of the finer points of both meetings protocols and also the labelling of these electronic copies:
Every parish has to hold two annual meetings, which may be (but are not always) held on the same evening. One is the public open meeting, sometimes called the annual parish meeting, which is not a parish council meeting so (unlike at a parish council meeting) all members of the public have the right to speak. The other is effectively the AGM of the Parish Council but is minuted as a normal parish council meeting. Section 15(2) of the Local Government Act 1972 requires that "the election of a chairman shall be the first business transacted at the annual meeting of the parish council and if, apart from subsection (8) below, the person presiding at the meeting would have ceased to be a member of the parish council, he shall not be entitled to vote in the election except in accordance with subsection (3) below." So if the document you have starts with 'Election of Chairman' then it relates to the 2000 AGM. One or two sets of minutes from the period 1996 to 2001 seem to be missing as 'electronic' documents (although I am sure we have the corresponding 'paper' documents somewhere); the minutes of the 2000 Public Meeting seems to be one of those missing items. I have tried to be consistent between years as to how these meetings are described in the pdf names, so they should all be labelled as either 'Annual Parish Meeting" or "PC AGM".
