Little Chart Parish Council is non-political and elected by village residents. It is the most local form of government and works to preserve the special character of our village. It can also provide a line of communication for local issues to be referred to Ashford Borough Council and other statutory bodies and organisations.
Our Meetings (approx. six per year, 2nd Tuesday bi-monthly) are open to all members of the public to attend and are normally held from 7.30pm to around 9.30pm, depending on the business on the agenda.
Next Parish Council Meeting – to be held on Tuesday 9th November – the forthcoming agenda, and the unconfirmed Minutes of the last meeting, can be found on the Minutes and Agendas 2021 page (click for link)
Following advice received from the National Association of Local Councils, Meetings can no longer take place remotely (on Zoom). Arrangements have been made for a meeting-in-person at the Village Hall. Those wishing to attend may like to note that the venue capacity is likely to be reduced by social distancing measures, and the Test and Trace system may require the disclosure of personal data.
