Welcome to the Farcet Parish Council website. Within this site you can find contact details for the Parish Councillors and Parish Clerk, together with details of meetings which include agendas and minutes.

Farcet Parish Councillors are unpaid volunteers and must live within a 3 mile radius of the Parish of Farcet when signing the declaration of office. The chairperson has declined the chairs allowance for the current year.

Parish Council meetings usually take place on the first Tuesday of each month (except Jan and Aug) at the Village Hall 7:30pm. Please check the meetings section as we can sometimes change the date of the meeting.

We discuss current issues affecting the village, planning applications, crime statistics and any financial transactions that have taken place over the previous month.
The public are welcome to attend these meetings as they are ‘open’ meetings.  If you would like to speak at the meeting we do have a public participation section on the agenda, please contact the clerk no later than 1 week in advance of the meeting with a brief outline.

 

We also hold a Cllr drop in surgery on the first Sat of each month (except Jan) with the Community Library Cafe from 10am to 1130am at the Village Hall, where you can chat to the Cllrs or raise issues with us. On occasion, a member of the local Neighbourhood Policing team  and a District Cllr will also be present.

Please note that Minutes on this website are posted prior to being ratified by the Parish Council and as such are in draft form. Any amendments to Minutes will appear in the following month’s minutes.
