Bacton Parish Council can: give views on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish; undertake projects that benefit local residents; work in partnership with others to benefit the parish; advise relevant authorities of problems or action that is needed; and help the other tiers of local government to engage with, and understand their local communities.
Members of the public are warmly invited to attend each meeting and time is set aside for public participation so that Bacton residents have an opportunity to speak to The Council on any matter relating to the village. This opportunity is given at the beginning of each meeting so if you raise or comment on a topic which is on the agenda for that meeting, Councillors will be able to take account of your views when that subject is discussed.
If you speak on a matter which is not on the current meeting agenda, your topic will not be discussed at that council meeting, but the Council will consider including it at a future meeting.
You can also raise suggestions, comments and matters of concern at any time with one of your Councillors or the Clerk.
District Councillor Jill Willshaw and County Councillor Andrew Stringer attend meetings regularly or send a written report
