The central function of the Council is to make local decisions relevant to the public interest of the parish, and this is performed at the meetings of the Council. A Parish Council must hold an annual meeting and at least three other meetings in a year; FPC holds meeting every month. In addition, an extraordinary meeting may be called at any time by the Chair or members, but due notice must be given.
Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings of the Parish Council.
Exceptions are when sensitive issues are discussed (such as legal, contractual or staffing matters) and then the council can agree to exclude the press and public for just that item of business. There is an opportunity before the council meeting opens for residents to ask questions on any items on the agenda or raise matters of interest or concern that they wish to bring to the attention of the Parish Council.
FPC meetings take place at the Village Hall on Valley Road (DA3 8NA), generally on the third Thursday of each month. The dates for the 2020/21 Council year are entered into the Events calendar. Any changes to these dates will be noted there.
