The Parish Council
Ever wondered what your Parish Council is here to do? The Parish Council is made up of 7 members who all live in Gressenhall and represent the village on various matters. We are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being Norfolk County Council and Breckland Council.
The Parish Council meet at 7.00pm on the first Tuesday of the month (excluding January) in the Reading Room.
The public is very welcome to attend and we encourage people to speak during the open forum which is part of each formal meeting.
Members of the public are welcome to audio or video record Parish Council meetings. Before doing so they should ask whether any members of the public object to having their faces recorded and should comply with any request not to do so. No oral commentary should be made on the proceeding, at the time of recording.
General Power of Competence
The Parish Council adopted the General Power of Competence at their Annual Meeting in May 2021.
