The Council comprises twelve members, supported by an officer (the Clerk). Councillors each contribute a wide range of experiences and expertise (and enthusiasms) to the task of making the parish a better place to live in.
It is worth remembering that parish councillors are unpaid volunteers who devote many hours each week to parish matters, including:
– maintain two cemeteries (the parish council is the burial authority for Ludgvan Parish)
– maintain two allotment sites (60 plots in total)
– maintain two amenity sites
– maintain a garden plot and cut grass generally around the parish
– clean and maintain all bus shelters within the parish
– maintain footpaths and bridleways on behalf of the Highways Authority
– as a statutory consultee, comment on all planning applications within the parish
– contribute to (and comment on) local and national discussions, new legislation etc.
– support local ‘good causes’
Members of the public and the press are both entitled and welcome to attend all parish council meetings. These are held on the second Wednesday of each month in the Oasis Childcare Centre and are advertised in advance on notice boards around the parish and on this website.
The first 15 minutes of every meeting is designated as a ‘Public Participation Period’ during which members of the public are able to ask questions or raise concerns about any item on the agenda (or, indeed, any other matter within the Council’s competence).
If you have any comments or suggestions to make and would like to contact the Council, you can do so by emailing the Parish Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
