Barningham Parish Meeting

Barningham Parish Meeting normally meets at least twice a year: an annual general meeting in spring and an ordinary meeting in autumn to discuss parish finance, set the precept for the coming financial year and determine tenancy of the parish-owned Bull Acre. Other meetings may be called if required.

All electors living in the parish are members of the Meeting and are welcome to attend and contribute to discussions; all electors have equal voting rights.

The 2022-23 finance meeting was held on Tuesday November 29th 2022.

The 2023 AGM was held on Wednesday April 26th 2023.

We are expecting a decision in June from Durham County Council on our application for extended parish meeting powers (click on the links below to see it and the subsequent DCC draft order).
