The Council consists of 10 volunteer and/or co-opted councillors, there is an elected Chair and Vice Chair, and meetings are usually held on the third Tuesday of each month – alternating between Middletown Village Hall and Trewern Community Centre. Please see the Diary page for specific dates and venues of meetings. The Council employs a Clerk /Responsible Finance Officer which is a salaried position currently for 20 hours per month.
Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings although they must not take part in the meeting unless specifically asked to do so by the Chair.
The main purpose of the Community Council is to represent the interests of the community and various topics are discussed at Council meetings ranging from Planning applications, organisation and maintenance of Play areas, Highway and many other issues. Agendas and Minutes are available on this website.
The Community Council mainly raises its funding through its “Precept” i.e.; a sum collected each year with the Council Tax and the funding is used to provide and improve services for local people.
