Parish Council Meetings


Asby Parish Council Meetings

The Council holds meetings every two months in Great Asby Village Hall. When necessary, extra sessions may be held to discuss planning matters.

Meetings normally take place on the first Thursday of the month, starting at 7pm.

Below you will find agendas and minutes of the current year’s meetings.  These can be downloaded from this site (when published).  Only business contained on the agenda can be considered at the meeting.  Please forward any items for the agenda to the Clerk at least two weeks before the meeting.

Can I speak at a Meeting?

Residents are encouraged and welcome to attend all meetings.  The Chair will invite any questions, comments, or suggestions on any subject from the public attending.  However, these are not public meetings so there will generally be no further opportunity for members of the public to speak once this agenda item is closed.  Of course, residents don’t have to wait until a meeting to raise issues, and may contact any of the Councillors or the Clerk whenever they wish.

ATG Activities

We will be working with local landowners to identify small areas of land that can be used to plant trees or hedges. Occasional requests will go out to members, seeking volunteers to survey areas of land to assess the age and health of trees and to identify possible planting areas, as well as to take part in planting trees and hedges. These activities will normally be scheduled to last for no more than three hours.

The Tree Group has insurance to cover members carrying out these activities.

COVID Policy (Feb.2022)

Unfortunately Covid-19 has not gone away, and we still want everyone to feel safe whilst being able to enjoy the film.

  • We use ‘cabaret-style’ seating around suitably spaced tables.
  • We recommend that you continue to wear a face covering when moving around the village hall, though this may be removed whilst you are seated.
  • It would also be appreciated if you could complete an antigen (lateral flow) test before attending.  (We are more than happy to refund your ticket should your test unfortunately prove positive.)
