Meetings of Stainton and Thornton Parish Council usually take place on the second Tuesday of alternate months at Stainton Memorial Hall. The meeting in March is always a joint meeting with the Community Council and the meeting in May is always the Annual General Meeting. The meetings generally start at 7:15pm.  Any change of dates and timing, if necessary, will be advertised on this website.

Parish Council meetings are open to the public. The council chairman does have the power to exclude the public from part of a meeting if he judges that publicity would be prejudicial to the public interest or because of the confidential nature of the business to be transacted, but this rarely happens. In practice, you are very welcome to attend Parish Council meetings.

Members of the public have no rights to speak at Parish Council meetings unless the council authorises it. But if you've got a constructive point to make about what's going on in Stainton and Thornton, the council will usually give you an opportunity to make that point.

Agendas and minutes of the parish council meetings are also available.
