Parish Council - ANNUAL MEETING
20th May 2019

 

The next Parish Council Meeting will be on Monday 20th May 2019 at Robertsbridge Hall at 7:30pm. Press and public are welcome to attend.

 

The first part of the Meeting will be the Annual Meeting, the first after the Elections on 2nd May, and will include election of a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Committees and Representatives (lasting approximately 30 minutes?). The outgoing Chairman Nick Greenfield will preside for the first item, to elect a new Chairman, after which he will step down and the new Chairman will take over (Nick did not re-stand for election, so his membership ends when the new Chairman is elected).

 

The six new Members of the Council will also be selecting up to three more Members to join the Council, to bring the number up to the full nine.

 

After the Annual Meeting, up to 15 minutes will be allowed for public comments and questions, before the start of normal business.

 

You can see the notice for the meeting here. The agenda for the meeting will be available on the council meetings page 3 days before the meeting.

Parish Council Elections - UNCONTESTED
4th April 2019

 

Rother District Council has published the details of persons nominated for the Parish Council in the Elections on 2nd May 2019.

 

As there were only six nominations for the nine places, all six people have been elected without a contest. This means there will be no Parish Council ballot on 2nd May. You can see the Notice with details of the six people elected here.

 

The new Council will come into effect at 5 p.m. on Tuesday 7th May 2019, when the current Council retires (the current Chairman, Nick Greenfield will remain in post until the new Council elects a Chairman at its first meeting on 20th May 2019).

 

One of the first tasks of the new Council will be to select three suitable and willing people to co-opt on to the Council to fill the three vacant places resulting from insufficient nominations.

NOTICE OF ELECTION - Parish Council Elections
25th March 2019

 

Elections for the nine places on the Parish Council are due on 2nd May this year.

 

Nomination papers (application forms) are now available from Rother District Council or the Parish Office. Fully completed forms and all required information must be delivered by hand to the Town Hall, Bexhill by 4pm on Wednesday 4th April. (Candidates are encouraged to make an appointment, for informal checks to ensure errors or omissions do not prevent them being accepted - 01424 787826.)

 

See the Notice of Election here.

 

All nine seats are up for election. If we only receive nine or less nominations, all of them will be 'elected unopposed' without the need for voting on 2nd May. But if there are more than nine, you will be able to vote for the people you want to become your Parish Councillors.

 

Why not consider standing for the Parish Council?
