aka the "Annual Parish Assembly" will be held on Monday 19th September, 7pm at Swanage Town Hall. This is the annual meeting where anyone can discuss anything, with the whole meeting given over to the public, for as long as people have anything to talk about - as opposed to the 15 minutes allocated to the public at the Council meetings on the last Monday of each month.
This meeting was originally held on 16th May but had to be reconvened. At the original meeting, John Wootton proposed a motion for the Council to conduct moreof its business in the evenings, to extend democracy by enabling more people to participate in the process of Council meetings. But the Mayor did not allow the topic to debated at that meeting. Subsequently, the Mayor and Town Clerk admitted this was wrong, so this new date has been arranged.
This motion will be proposed again, so if you have a view on the subject, please turn up.
And if you have anything else you wish to raise, this is the time and place to do it!
