The Highways, Environment and Communications Committees meet regularly to bring forward projects and to work together to represent the community. This often means attending other meetings, working with partners and making site visits. The Committee Meetings are held every other month opposite the Full Council meetings. However, you will see that not all Committees meet every other month - it all depends on whether a meeting is required.

Agendas and minutes are available on the website or can be sent by email if preferred. Members of the public are welcome to come along and sit in on Committee meetings and observe proceedings.

Fortunately, Edgmond Parish Council has not required the use of the Complaints and Appeals Committee. However, it is a legal requirement to have one, and the Committee would only meet if action to address a matter was required. The Complaints Procedure guides the public and local residents on how to register a complaint and how it will be dealt with.

A Steering Group was set up in 2016 to help steer the Council towards the production of its Neighbourhood Plan. The work of this Group has now (May 2018) been completed. There is a separate page on the website covering this subject.

Up until recently, planning applications were scrutinised online and then discussed at Full Council meetings. However, because of the volume of planning applications the Planning Committee was re-established at the 2018 AGM in order to deal more efficiently with applications.
