How to raise an issue with Hedgeley Parish Council

Anyone who wishes to raise an issue or make a suggestion to Hedgeley Parish Council should do so in writing or attend a quarterly Parish Council Meeting.

Letters can be passed to Councillors or, if urgent, raised with the Chair, Vice Chair or Clerk.

Please note that if someone approaches a Councillor without putting the matter in writing, the Councillor will be obliged to disclose the person’s name and this would be minuted if raised at a meeting.

The reason for dealing with issues in this way is to provide Councillors with all relevant information directly from individuals. This is important if a decision is required on any issue raised.
