Cranfield Parish Council Meetings

Cranfield Parish Council ordinarily meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month (except August) 8.00 pm at Hoywell School, Red Lion Close.  Meeting Agendas are available on line here and are also displayed on the noticeboards.  Future meeting dates can be found on the Council Diary. If any of the regular meeting dates or times have to be changed, notice will be given by the Council on the web site and relevant Parish Council notice boards.

The Council also have an Annual Meeting in May to elect the Chair and Vice Chair and review the membership of the various Parish Committees Members.

 All residents of Cranfield are welcome to attend meetings of the Council to observe the proceedings. There is an opportunity at the beginning of every ordinary meeting for residents to ask questions of the council or make a statement to the Council, prior to the commencement of its business at that meeting. The time limit for this is normally 10 minutes.

Please remember when making any comment that a Council Meeting is a public meeting for which minutes are produced and published. Members of the public cannot take part in the actual business of a council meeting and are asked not to interrupt the proceedings.

If there is a matter that you think the council should discuss you can contact the clerk or a councillor, and ask that it be put on the agenda for the next meeting. Agendas are usually prepared seven days before the meeting to which they relate so make sure that you ask in good time. Meeting agendas are published on the web site and noticeboards three clear days before a meeting.

Meetings will last a maximum of 2 hours, so if a meeting already has a full agenda, some items may be deferred for discussion to a subsequent meeting, so that a proper and full time allowance can be made for discussion of the item.

Ward Councillors

The local members of Central Bedfordshire Council (Cranfield and Marston Moretaine Ward), Mrs Sue Clark, Mr Ken Matthews and Mr Robert Morris, are invited to all Council meetings both to advise on matters relating to Central Bedfordshire Council and to discuss any issues that Cranfield may have.
