Watching the clock

A TWO-HOUR time limit has been put on parish meetings.

Members of Widdrington Station and Stobswood Parish Council unanimously backed an amendment to their Standing Orders to accommodate the change.

However, it will be possible to extend the meeting beyond the limit if there is just cause, subject to the Chairman’s discretion.

It was also confirmed that the parish meeting in April will move to the third Monday of the month, April 16, due to the Easter Bank Holiday. It will take place in Widdrington Station Community Centre in Grange Road at 6.30pm.
