It is difficult to view a parish council agenda in isolation, just as the minutes cannot be considered alone. The agenda, the meeting itself and the minutes themselves comprise the legal decision making process of a town or parish council. By default there will be a considerable degree of overlap between these events.

As a result this Best Practice Guide includes matters relating to the agenda, the meeting and minutes. It is hoped that this will put items of procedure and Best Practice into context.

This Best Practice Guide (BPG) is for residents, councillors and clerks and is applicable to all meetings of the council its committees and sub-committees. Working parties or advisory committees are excluded.
