The Elms Charmouth

The Public are welcome to attend Committee meetings and Full Council meetings. Most meetings are held at The Elms, St Andrews Drive, Charmouth, although parking is easier on The Street side. Accessibility for wheelchairs is possible and there is a lift.

Playing Field, Cemetery and Street Management Committee and Foreshore Committee meetings are held on the last Tuesday of every other month (Feb, April, June, Aug, Oct and Dec (an appropriate Tues before Christmas)) at 6.30pm and 7.30pm respectively. These are usually held at The Elms, unless a site meeting is requested.

Planning Committee and Finance Committee meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every other month (Jan, March, May, July, Sept and Nov) at 6.00pm and 7.00pm respectively at The Elms. There may be a need to hold a Planning Committee in the other months and these will always be advertised in advance on this site and on the Elms notice board. 

Full Parish Council meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of every other month (Jan, March, May, July, Sept and Nov) at 7.30pm at The Elms.

From February 2021 the normal cycle of meetings (Committee and Full Council) recommenced with all meetings being held virtually.

However, due to the Government not extending the legislation relating to virtual meetings after 7 May, and the logistics of holding "face to face" meetings while social distancing is still required, the Annual Meeting of the Council will now be held virtually on Tuesday 4 May instead of Tuesday 25 May as originally planned.  There will be a special meeting of the Council to purely discuss/agree the Neighbourhood Plan Submission on Tuesday 25 May and this will be held in St Andrew's Community Hall to enable social distancing.  There will be no other meetings in May or June until the Committee meetings planned for the end of June which will be held at The Elms due to the relatively small numbers which will allow social distancing.  It is then hoped that meetings will continue to follow the schedule which can be viewed above - "calendar of meetings 2021".

Due to the latest Government Announcement, the Annual Parish Meeting scheduled for Wednesday 7 July 2021 at 7.30pm in St Andrew's Community Hall has had to be postponed and will be re-arranged when it is safe to hold.

The agenda for each meeting will be published the Thursday before the meeting date and will be available to view under the appropriate heading.
