Who we are & what we do

Tupton Parish Council is made up of 11 local people elected by the local community every four years.

Council meetings are normally held on the Fourth Tuesday in the month, with the exception of August. All meetings are held in Tupton Village Hall and start at 7pm. All meetings are open to the public with provision made at the start of each meeting for residents of the Parish to ask questions or raise matters of concern.

Calendar of Meetings for Tupton Parish Council

Sept 2019 to May 2020

194/2019 Calendar of Meetings

It was RESOLVED to alter the meeting date of the Parish Council from the 4th Thursday of the month to the 2nd Wednesday commencing December 2019. This would reduce the need to change dates of meetings for Christmas and elections.

The purpose of the Council is to represent the interests of the whole community. They do this through their involvement in a range of local groups, direct contact with local people and wide ranging consultations with the local community.

Council Meetings - see the council meetings calendar for more information and a list of Council Meeting dates.

Committees and Working Groups

We have a Finance committee, who meet as and when necessary but as a minimum at least once a year in November, when the precept requirement for the following year will be assessed ready for presentation to full Council.

The council may set up other working groups to deal with any issues relating to Parish business as considered necessary during the year.

Our Staff

We have 6 members of staff, a Parish Clerk who deals with the day to day running of the council, all financial matters in co-operation with the finance committee. We have a street sweeper / handy man who's duties include clearing litter undertaking Health & Safety checks on Council owned equipment and any other duties as directed by the Clerk. The Community Support Worker undertakes similar duties to the Street Sweeper/handy man but at the weekend and is a flexible resource to help support Community activities. The Community Gardener takes care of the maintenance of the garden in the centre of the Parish.

In addition, the Council employs the Premises Managers who look after the Village Hall.
