Parish Meetings

Everyone of voting age living in Warleggan Parish is an equal member of the Warleggan Parish Meeting. The parish is too small to have a full parish council;  the Parish Meeting is, however, fully recognised by Cornwall Council, and receives funds through the parish precept, i.e. from our council taxes.  It’s a meeting where any local issues of concern can be raised and discussed.   
The Parish Meeting is often followed by a meeting of the Planning Sub-Committee,  at which any planning applications likely to affect parishioners can be reviewed and commented upon formally to Cornwall Council.  See more:  how parish meetings work


Next parish meeting:  Thursday 18th October, at 8 pm:

Previous meeting (see draft minutes*) was Thursday 19 July – with discussion on appeal regarding planning application for additional houses near Noel’s Meadow –  see details  on our Noel’s Meadow Extension page  –  and also boundary commission proposals and demise of Asda bus

At  the Parish Meeting AGM of 20 April 2017, the following officers were elected:

Parish Meeting Structure:

  • Chairman:  John K
  • Vice chair:  Emma T
  • Clerk: Andy M  
  • Members: Every person living with Warleggan Parish (i.e in villages of Mount and Warleggan and surrounding area) is an equal member of the Parish Meeting.  Each has an equal voice on all issues, except for when discussing planning applications (on which only the elected planning subcommittee is authorised to vote – see below)   
  • Planning Subcommittee: the members elected to serve in this committee (and therefore to vote on planning applications) are John K (chairman), John J, Veronica C, Geoff S, Julie G, Andrew L, Diane W, Emma T and Carolyn S.

For full details about all meetings, see minutes of previous meetings

Any other items you’d like to  see discussed? 
– Let John (parish chairman) or Andy (parish clerk) know, or use the comment function below, and we’ll pass your suggestion on.   

  1. Do we know who is standing for election for planning?

  2. Just came across this website info, about the extent to which parish councils can (or, more correctly, cannot) approve or reject planning applications. As they point out, the most that parish councils (committees) can do is to comment on an application, just as individuals may also do. And such comments received, whether in favour or against an application, count no more and no less than comments submitted by any individual.
