and committee meetings are open to the public, by law.
We are using the term
'public' meeting here to indicate a larger meeting, generally called to discuss
a specific subject. This could be on an issue that is affecting the community,
or, the Annual Town Meeting which is held each year in spring.
Kington Town’s Annual Meeting
The Annual Town Meeting is not a Council meeting but is a meeting of residents to raise matters of interest or concern or to discuss a topic that affects the Town. For 2019 it took take place on 22nd May 2019. There was no meeting in 2020 due to Coronavirus restrictions.
For 2021, Covid 19 is still with us and restrictions on public gatherings indoors mean that the meeting cannot take place as usual. We will therefore hold a very short meeting on Thursday 13th May 2021 at 6.00pm in the Old Police Station, Market Hall Street, Kington when it will be proposed that the meeting will be immediately closed and rescheduled for later in the year. Details of the later meeting will be published nearer the time but will include the presentation of civic awards to those who have supported us all through these particularly difficult months due to Covid restrictions.
For further information please contact the Town Clerk via email to email@example.com or phone 07483 914 485.
Other Public Meetings
The Town Council organises public meetings where there are specific local issues that require consultation: this is so that the views of a wider range of residents can be taken into account in the Council's decision-making.
