Covington Parish Meeting
Our Parish Meeting is the smallest unit of democracy in the UK.
Because we have such a small electorate, just about 80, we have no need to elect Parish Councillors. We are all Parish Councillors. We elect a Chairman and a Clerk.
We have limited power but we can, through the District Council, raise a small rate to spend on things in our village. Our comments on planning proposals must be considered but not necessarily heeded.
We meet twice a year and rely on residents' interest. Special meetings can be called, rarely, but usually to discuss planning proposals.
