Thornton Steward Parish Meeting 

The Parish Meeting discusses, and potentially influences, local issues and activities which specifically affect this parish. These are many and varied.  We also decide the annual ‘precept’ which is needed to finance, for example: grass cutting, insurance and maintenance of assets like the bus shelter. 

If you are on the electoral roll for Thornton Steward parish, you are part of Thornton Steward Parish Meeting:

  • you are eligible to attend meetings
  • you can submit items for the agenda
  • you can participate in discussions and
  • you can vote on motions raised.

We meet as and when issues for discussion arise.  However, as a minimum each year, an ‘annual meeting’ must be held between 1st March and 1st June, plus one further meeting.  At the annual meeting you can help to elect or re-elect the Parish Meeting Chairperson (who must be an elector resident in this parish).

Notices of meetings are posted on the Thornton Steward Village Noticeboard 7 days in advance.  To maximise publicity, the current clerk/chairperson also delivers notices to households in the parish. 

Meetings are held in Thornton Steward Village Institute. To see the Minutes from these meetings, click here
