Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Parish Council?

It is a statutory local authority set up under the Local Government Act 1972. A town or Parish Council is a local authority that makes decisions on behalf of the people in the parish. It is the level government closest to the community.

Who is on the Council?

It is made up of 11 Parish Councillors who do not receive remuneration or payment for their work. They are elected once every four years. Every year the Parish Council Council elects one of them to be the Chairman of the Parish Council.

Can I attend meetings of the council?

Yes, meetings of the Parish Council and its committees are open to the public and the press, except in very exceptional circumstances. The time and place of meetings must be advertised beforehand – usually on the noticeboards and website.

Can I speak at meetings of the Parish Council?

You cannot speak while the normal business of the meeting is being conducted. However, in some meetings there is a ‘public forum’ where members of the public can speak. The Clerk can provide you with details about how this works.

How do people get elected to the council?

Elections are held every four years and will usually coincide with a District Council election. A Public Notice of a forthcoming election will be placed on noticeboards and on this website. Sometimes the number of people who put their names forward for election is less than the number of seats on the Parish Council or a councillor resigns. In these circumstances, the Parish Council can co-opt someone to fill the vacancies.

What powers does the Parish Council have with respect to planning?

The Parish Council is consulted by the relevant planning authority (which is the East Riding of Yorkshire Council) on all planning applications. Any views expressed by the Parish Council are taken into account before a decision is made. The final decision is made by the Planning Authority, not the Parish  Council.

Planning Notifications

February 9th, 2021 Posted by Planning 0 thoughts on “Planning Notifications”

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council published an article within the “Your East Riding” informing residents of the changes to their Planning Application publicity taking effect from 1 April 2017.

These changes formed part of a wider initiative to encourage a greater use of technology within the Council and the planning service, and as the ERYC would no longer be posting individual letters to neighbouring properties, the article set out the benefits for residents of registering on the ERYC Public Access website in order to keep informed of new planning applications, track applications of interest and make any comments.   Any complaints relating to these procedures should be submitted to Stephen Hunt, Head of Planning, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Cross Street, Beverley, HU17 9BA.

The Parish Council are not responsible for the notification of Planning Applications to neighbouring properties, this is the responsibility of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and complaints relating to the timing of their display notices etc should be directed to themselves at County Hall.  The Parish Council have a obligation to display Agendas for meetings providing three clear days within the Parish Notice boards both at West End – Costcutters & Market Place – Town Hall.  The Agendas are also uploaded to the Parish website www.southcavepc.gov.uk

It is important residents regularly visit the notice boards or the website to ensure they are fully up to date with matters detailed on the agenda, within the minutes and also the general information provided which may be of interest in residents and visitors to the area.
