Annual parish council meeting
This is always the meeting at which the Chairman is elected, and is usually held on the 2nd Wednesday in May.
The only exception to this might be in an election year, where it has to be held within 14 days of the date when councillors should take office. – the next election year is 2025.
Gurnard parish council splits the annual meeting into 2 parts with the first part being for the election of the Chairman and Vice-Chairman, as well as appointing councillors to represent the parish council on various outside bodies and organisations. The 2nd part then proceeds as per an ordinary monthly full council meeting. The public session will usually take place between the 1st and 2nd parts of the agenda.
