Welcome to the Danbury Parish Council Website
Due to the ending of temporary legislation allowing meetings to be held remotely the Council agreed to suspend Standing Orders and Financial Regulations and delegate the responsibility of decision making to the Clerk. Where possible, informal meetings will be held at the scheduled time via Zoom (a free video conferencing system that can be downloaded onto home systems) or by email and decisions would be based on the majority opinion of those Members present. If any members of the public wish to attend, the joining instructions will be published on this website.
All decisions taken by the Clerk will be emailed to the relevant Committee or Council members and ratified at the next quorate meeting
