The Council

Cleeve Parish Council has seven Councillors who are elected every four years at General Council Elections. The next election will be in May 2019. Councillors are not paid for their services but may receive travelling expenses for attending meetings or activities outside the parish. Each May, at the Annual Parish Council Meeting, the Councillors elect one member to be the Chairman of Council for the forthcoming year. The Council is obliged to have a person, to be its Proper Office - called the Clerk to the Council or Parish Clerk. It is also required to appoint a person to be responsible for the finances of the Council - the Responsible Finance Officer (RFO).

The Parish Council elects its own Chairman, and a Vice-Chairman, currently every May.

The Parish Council currently does not have sub committees and therefore decisions are made by all Councillors in attendance at the monthly ordinary meetings. Click here to see a list of responsibilities as representatives at external meetings.
