Hanham Abbots Parish Council
Welcome to the Hanham Abbots Parish Council website.
This site has been developed to give the residents access to their Parish Council.
We hope to regularly update these pages to communicate what the Parish Council wishes to achieve throughout the year and what progress is being made on any current projects or issues which have been raised.
The legislation that allowed councils to hold virtual meetings ceased on 7th May 2021. A risk assessment for returning to face to face meetings has been carried out and as a result, Hanham Abbots Parish Council has resolved to suspend normal council meetings until 1st September 2021. A temporary Scheme of Delegation has been agreed to authorise the Clerk to make decisions on behalf of the Council which is due for review on 1st September 2021. It is hoped that by then, all Covid19 restrictions will have been lifted and normal face to face meetings can resume.
Access to Information
We have already incorporated an archive of the Parish Council minutes from meetings September 2018 onwards and will continue to upload the latest dates and minutes from all the Parish Council meetings onto this site. If you wish to see copies of minutes prior to September 2018 then please contact the Clerk.
We will use the News and Events column to keep you informed about local information and other items which we think are important for you to know. The column will also carry details about what’s happening in the area and we encourage the organisers of events to let us know, using the contact form, so we can provide further publicity for your activities.
Who are we?
