Parishioners wishing to bring any matter before North Huish Parish Council should either attend an open forum (held at the start of this Council meeting) or ask a Councillor to represent them. Parishioners are asked to limit their input to 4 minutes in order to permit the meeting to progress without undue delay, and may only speak during the open forum.

Don't forget that if you would like to raise a matter relating to other bodies, such as South Hams District Council and Devon County Council, it is often best if you contact them directly.  However, the Parish Council would try help if difficulties arise after such a referral has taken place.

Please note that a sound recording of this meeting will be taken and published online. Members of the public who speak at this meeting will be deemed to have given consent to being recorded, in accordance with our protocol for recording.
