ABOUT THE TOWN MEETING
The Annual Town Meeting is an open meeting for all residents of Knutsford – whilst it is organised by the Town Council, it is not a council meeting. The law says the meeting must be held between 1st March and 1st June and we usually hold ours in April. The meeting is chaired by the Mayor with the Town Clerk taking the minutes but Councillors have no more standing than other electors of Knutsford.
The meeting is an open forum giving residents an opportunity to raise issues they feel are important to the town. This could be:
- Suggesting ideas for the Town Council to investigate
- Raising concerns about planned activities in the town
- Asking questions to the Town Council
- Raising general issues affecting the town
Any registered elector for Knutsford has the right to speak at the meeting.
We usually use the Town Meeting as an opportunity to celebrate the community by presenting our Town Awards. In 2021 we’ve delayed our Town Awards due to COVID and they will be presented later in the year.
