At the Annual Parish Council Meeting held on May 4th 2021, Pat Woodfield announced her resignation.
Cllr Andrew Gough was elected as Chairman for 2021-22. He thanked Pat for her contribution over the past 6 years, including 2 years as Chair.
Please join us in welcoming Cllr Adam Wylie, who has been coopted to the Parish Council.
The Parish Council's April meeting has been rearranged again, to 27th April.
There has been much debate between the great and good of local government about what business can and cannot be conducted during the period of national mourning for HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
Our rearrangement follows new advice from the National Association of Civic Officers (NACO) and National Association of Local Councils (NALC) :
‘there is an official period of mourning for eight days set out in the Government guidance. As a result these days should be excluded for calculation of time and any timescales that end in this period should be postponed until the first day after the period in accordance with section 243 of the Local Government Act 1972. We do not draw a distinction between national and public mourning.’
In simple terms, we are required to give 3 clear days' notice of our meeting, and we are unable to give notice of our meeting until the end of the mourning period.
Nottinghamshire County Councillor Boyd Elliott joined Woodborough Parish Council Chair Pat Woodfield to open the new permissive footpath in time for the Easter holiday. They were quickly joined by our first local walker and her beautiful dogs! Dogs are welcome on the new footpath but must be kept on a lead.
The footpath can be accessed from Charnwood Way. Please respect the residents’ privacy.
