Beverley Town Council works at the heart of the local community. With fourteen elected councillors and a small staff team, what it lacks in scale it makes up for in positive impact and passion for Beverley. We have three key strategic ambitions which will guide everything that we do. These are:
- Making Beverley a cleaner and greener place to live, work and be happy.
- Making Beverley a place where everyone matters, and people pull together.
- Making Beverley Town Council’s finances and organisational structure clear, so that people can understand how their money is spent
In these uncertain times as the nature of local government changes and the country comes out of lockdown following the Covid-19 pandemic, town councils like ours must play an increasingly important role in helping to maintain and enhance local quality of life. We want to work with the Beverley community to ensure our town continues to be a unique and wonderful place in which to work, visit and live.
Public Access – Full Council: Until further notice, Full Council meetings will take place in the Emmaus Room at the Beverley Minster Parish Hall. These meetings will be held in-person and will not be live-streamed online.
Public Access – Committee Meetings: Members of the public can view live-steams and recordings of Committee Meetings via the Town Council’s You Tube Channel. However, Personnel Committees Meetings will now take place in-person at the Council Offices, but members of the public are excluded because confidential information in relation to staff will be disclosed (Public Bodies (Admission of Meetings) Act 1960).
Full Council Public Forum: In normal circumstances, members of the public are welcome to address meetings of Full Council in the public forum at 6:30pm and then stay to observe proceedings. If you wish to speak in the public forum, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance so we know to welcome you to the meeting.
Notes: Meeting dates may be subject to change and additional meetings may be scheduled depending on the need to facilitate Council business. A meeting is only lawful binding once the official summons has been released. Agendas are also displayed on the noticeboard located in Wednesday Market.
