Your Parish Council
Shuttington Parish council is a statutory body and is the first tier of local government in England. . As a body accountable to the public, the parish council adheres to the Nolan Principles which were set by the Committee on Standards in Public Life
We serve the electorate and are independently elected. We raise a precept – a form of council tax – from the local community..
Your council works towards improving community well being and providing better services at a local level. Our activities fall into three main categories:

For the year 2020/2021 the council will usually meet on 3rd Wednesday every month (excluding December) at 6pm in Shuttington & Alvecote Parish Hall.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 19th August 2020 at 6pm.
The Agenda will be posted on the Parish Council Documents page at least 3 days before the meeting date.
Minutes of meetings are normally posted after the following meeting when they are approved.
ANNUAL OPEN PARISH MEETING Normally by May every year the Parish Council hosts what is called the "Annual Parish Meeting" which always precedes the usual Council Meeting. All residents of the parish are invited to attend this meeting and discuss any matter that concerns them and to hear the Chair of the Parish Council outline plans for the forthcoming year. Because of the lockdown we will probably be unable to host a meeting this year as at the current time it would be in contravention of Government guidance. We have been instructed to "not pursue any arrangements for the Annual Parish Meeting until the Government has clarified matters".
However the Parish Council is still operating and carrying on the business of managing contracts, carrying out ongoing maintenance, etc. Therefore if you want to raise any matters that under normal circumstances you would like to have raised at a Council Meeting please send the Clerk, Anita Allsopp or any Councillor, an email or message."
