Note to our Residents

Bearsted Parish Council welcome our residents to join us at our council meetings. We offer all residents the opportunity to speak about issues concerning the Parish. To follow government legislation surrounding council meetings we limit public speaking to 15 minutes at the start of each meeting. To allow several residents the chance to speak we limit each speaker to 3 minutes.

Please note: Councilors are unable to respond to or discuss comments made by the public at the meeting.  We would like to reassure our residents that these issues are considered and discussed at subsequent meetings should the need occur, and residents are responded to where necessary.

Please see Standing Order 3 e – f for matters relating to the public attendance at Council Meetings.
