Due to the restrictions on public gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Parish Council has not been able to hold a face to face council meeting since February last year.
The UK Government has passed legislation allowing councils to hold virtual meetings; the Parish Council is using the Zoom App until restrictions are lifted.
Members of the public have a right to attend remotely. Agendas, with information on how to join the virtual meetings are available on the “Agendas and Minutes” page of this website.
This website is published and maintained by Hopesay Parish Council for everyone who lives and / or works in the parish, and for anyone who wants to find out more about Hopesay Parish Council. Under the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities (Department of Communities and Local Government), the Council is required to publish specific information, and our website has been designed with this in mind.
We hope you find what you are looking for on our website. However, if you cannot find what you are looking for, or have any feedback or suggestions, please let us know.
LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTION 2021
In May 2021 local government elections take place. A Notice of Election was published on Monday 15th March by Shropshire Council's Returning Officer, and this notice includes details of how to register to vote, and how to apply for a postal or proxy vote. On Wednesday 14th April, the Returning Officer published a Notice of Uncontested Election for Hopesay Parish. This means that the 7 councillors who were nominated to stand in the election are elected uncontested.
However, there is a contested election on 6th May for this parish's Unitary Councillors. The Statement of Persons Nominated for Craven Arms and Church Stretton was published on Friday 9th April. The Notice of Poll was published on 27th April. Also published on 27th April was the Notice of Poll for the West Mercia Police Crime Commissioner Election.
The Declaration of the Result of the Election for Unitary Councillors for the area has now been published.
