We would like to welcome you to the Burton Fleming Parish Council website and hope that you find it informative and helpful.

About this Website

The aim of this website is to provide up to date information for the Parish Council and other village organisations.  It is also a requirement that the Parish Council adheres to the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities 2014.  This code was issued to meet the government's desire to place more power into citizen's hands and to increase democratic accountabilities.  The Code requires online publication of  key spending and governance information on occasions as specified in the Code. The Government considers that publication of the items in adherence to this Code will provide the electorate and ratepayers with a clear picture of the activities of the Parish Council

The Transparency Code be viewed, along with other policies, in the Parish Council Section tab above.

The next Parish Council meeting will take place as soon as practically possible once the Coronavirus outbreak has subsided.

The Government have issued new regulations surrounding Parish Council meetings. In brief these are:

Regulation 6(c) removes the requirement for a parish council to hold an annual meeting in May 2020

Regulation 4 (2) carries the current appointment of chairman on until the Annual Meeting in May 2021 although councils may elect a chairman at earlier meeting should they wish to.

Regulation 5 covers remote attendance; extending the definition of “place” to include more than one location and including electronic, digital or virtual locations. It goes on to set out all the conditions that must be complied with, making sure the member attending remotely can be heard and where possible seen by other members and by the press and public and can hear and preferably see the other members.

Regulation 13 modifies the Public Bodies (Admission to Meetings) Act 1960 allowing for remote attendance by the press and public.  Clerks should note that Regulation 13 (a) requires any electronic  notice of a meeting to be published on the principal authority’s website and does not negate the normal requirement under Local Government Act 1972 Schedule 12 Part II Paragraph 10 (2) (a) to publish a notice in a conspicuous place.
