North Huish Parish Council

Alterations to Parish Council Meetings due to Covid-19 Pandemic

Due to the need to reduce close contact between individuals and the limited space available for meetings, NHPC will be modifying its usual parish council meetings until further notice. We are sure that you will appreciate that this is an exceptional measure in response to an unprecedented national emergency.

We intend to hold meetings on-line until we are able to resume meetings in person. As usual, members of the public will be welcome to attend these meetings. Details of past and future meetings are available here.

In the meantime, you can still contact the parish council as usual and we will do our best to address any issues that you raise. Instead of voicing matters at our Open Forums at the beginnings of our meetings, you may prefer to e-mail or telephone the Clerk, who will circulate your enquiry to the council and collate the council’s response.
