Our Parish Council meets on the first Tuesday of the month. Our Clerk routinely issues the meeting agenda and papers shortly before midnight on the Thursday before the meeting. Some Councillors have questioned whether this gives 3 clear days notice, but the Clerk has advised that it does and it is only 'best practice' to discount the Saturday.
This month 3 meetings will be held back to back, the Annual Parish meeting, the Parish Council Annual meeting and the usual monthly Parish Council meeting. The agendas and papers are yet to be issued. If they are issued to Councillors, as is usual, on Thursday evening, then I assume that will be insufficient notice this month as Monday is a Bank Holiday?
Bearing in mind Councillors will, amongst other things, be electing a Chair will they still be able to make a valid election if insufficient notice of the meeting has been given? Are there any other consequences to consider - I understand specific other time limits apply in an election year?
