Council Meetings

Whitminster Village HallThe Council normally meets on the first Wednesday of each month, except in the month of August when there is no meeting. It considers planning applications, local issues, and issues referred to it by local residents, Stroud District Council and by Central Government.

Meetings start at 7:30pm and unless stated, are held in the Whitminster Village Hall, School Lane, Whitminster.

The agenda for each meeting is displayed on the School notice board for about six days before the start of the meeting. Members of the public are also invited to attend and will be made welcome. There is a forum before the start of the meeting at which members of the public can raise concerns, ask questions and share ideas. If matters raised are not the responsibility of the council, the Clerk can bring them to the attention of the proper authority. Meetings may last two or three hours, depending on the agenda set for the meeting to discuss. There is also an annual parish meeting, which all parishioners are also invited to attend.


The main communication channel with the council is via the Clerk, but residents can also contact any councillor. Please us our Contact the Clerk page to direct any queries.
