Extraordinary Parish Council meetings are called as and when necessary, particularly if a response to a planning application is required by Babergh District Council before the next ordinary meeting. These meetings are usual quite short, just to consider planning applications and any other urgent matters. Notice of the meeting with an agenda are published on the noticeboard and online as usual.

As the Parish Council is a statutory consultee, all planning applications for Kersey are sent to us by Babergh District Council for comments. The Parish Council is responsible for the approval and monitoring of Parish Council expenditure and setting the precept. The Parish Council is also involved in highways, community safety, and rights of way.

Our meetings are regularly attended by:

  • Leigh Jamieson our Babergh District Councillor
  • Robert Lindsay our Suffolk County Councillor

Minutes of Parish Council meetings can be seen online, see folders below.  A hard copy can be obtained from the Clerk upon request.  A Parish Council report is also published in the Kersey Newsletter.
