The annual Parish meeting for 2023 was held on 22nd May in the Village Hall. As last year, various reports were compiled into a properly bound 24 page booklet. Please click the link below to see a pdf of this PC Report. Also below are links to the Draft Minutes and other Council reports.
The annual Parish meeting for 2022 was held on 9th May in the Village Hall. As last year, various reports were compiled into a properly bound 28 page booklet. Please click the link below to see a pdf of this PC Report. Also below are links to the Minutes and other Council reports.
The annual Parish meeting was Laxfield’s first foray back into physical meetings. It was appreciated that some people may not have felt ready to attend in person and therefore zoom was available for members of the public to attend.
The various reports were also compiled into a booklet which will be distributed to all households in the parish.
Laxfield Parish Council is committed to improving our village.
During development of Laxfield’s Neighbourhood Plan last year many villagers identified road safety as a priority for the village. Laxfield Parish Council is now exploring opportunities to designate certain rural lanes in the village as “Quiet Lanes” as part of a county-wide project. We feel that this would be of real benefit to the village and those who visit.
As part of the formal public consultation process, proposals were discussed at an Open Forum (held remotely via Zoom) on 12 April 2021.

Laxfield Parish Council is made up of 9 councillors. There are ten full meetings during the year (no meeting in August and December), held on the second Monday in the month. Additional Extraordinary Meetings may be held to deal with a specific item of urgent business if agreed by the Chair and Vice-Chair. The Finance Committee meets every December.
All members of the public and press are welcome to attend all meetings of the Council and its committees and sub-committees. The members of the Parish Council elect a Chair, whose role is to ensure a fair and adequate hearing of the views present and at the same time to restrict the discussion to consideration of the business in hand.
The Parish Council acts strictly within statutory boundaries and strives at all times to retain public confidence.
The Annual Parish Meeting is organised by the Parish Council and chaired by its Chair. It is always held in May and exists to allow all parishioners to attend and ask any questions or bring up any matters relating to the village.
