How much damage has been done to the cause of Parish Councils by the recent nonsense in Cheshire?
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
44:56
The truth is there is a massive lack of diversity in parish and town councils. Where are the BAME Cllrs? Disabled Cllrs? LGBT+ Cllrs? Economically disadvantaged Cllrs?
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
46:12
(I ask that as an openly gay man. But I often feel very much in a minority.)
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
47:22
If you dont have a massive set of diversities in your town you concentrate on what you have. Most people are struggling to live and work and dont have the time. They see it as the oldies are the only ones that have the time. how do we persuade them otherwise ?
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
47:51
Witham Town Council now has an LGBT ambassador and hopefully we will encourage all people to become councillors
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
47:55
By the way, I'm working with NALC in regards to LGBT+ representation on PC's and TC's.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
48:06
More info coming soon.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
48:50
Loretta, apologies if not the case...But that sounds like an excuse not to even try.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
49:12
Great to hear, Susan!
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
51:06
I wondered how long it would be before that embarrassment of a parish council was mentioned.
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
52:00
How would you suggest that we get the information out there? We have a parish newsletter but how do we network with our residents apart from that?
Gina walker Chair Eastrington PC
52:58
I’d love to get more information out to my residents but not everyone on the PC feels the same!
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
53:01
Mathew Hulbert. I spend ages trying to get people to stand at local elections.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
53:13
Online. On Twitter, Facebook, virtual meetings.etc.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
53:21
Great to hear Loretta.
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
53:37
We have suggested councillor surgeries but with the current lockdown rules we can’t do that.
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
53:45
check me out on all those platforms
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
54:01
Me too.
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
54:15
We have tried these with little success, coffee mornings work but cannot do these at the moment
Sue smith woughton community council
54:15
we at Woughton community council in Milton Keynes, we have, since last march as zoomed and live stream ALL our meetings and we have done a Friday update, again live on Facebook and we have had 20,000 views with residents and hope we can still have that level of engagement after lockdown ends
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
54:43
Not all our residents are connected to social media platforms, what else can we do?
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
55:20
When not in Covid times, hold in person public meetings.
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
55:24
Most people seem to like the idea of not having to come out at night but be able to watch on screen.
Steve McNay - Woughton Community Council
55:26
As our umbrella organisation, NALC continues to be seen as setting an example. For the past three years, I have been encouraging use of inclusive language (e.g. gender neutral 'Chair' rather than 'ChairMAN'), without success.Is this a place to start making a change? Is there a need for this to be prioritised at NALC level, as much as it is within local councils? Model standing orders, for example....?Whilst this may be a small thing, it sets a tone. And that is important.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
55:44
There are LGBT+ people in every single community!
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
56:34
We should absolutely be using gender-neutral terms.
Cllr Rebecca Halifax, Cirencester Town Council
56:45
My experience as a Councillor, and as a current Candidate, is that local parties are terrible at understanding that one size does not fit all. There is an assumption in local politics (where people are usually volunteers) that people have endless time. Little/no consideration is given to those who work, have childcare issues (especially single parents!) etc. I'm committed but even so find it incredibly demoralising to always be the one saying we need to be *actively* inclusive.
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
57:05
We held mock elections in our academies to encourage youth interest in local council
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
57:17
Yes and some f them are really good friends of mine here ! They just dont have the time at the moment as they are trying to keep their heads above water. I have been told that in two years at the next elections we will have a lot more people standing. Fingers crossed
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
57:18
I am sorry but not everyone wants to be gender neutral. This is a small point but valid I feel.
Cllr P. Dennis (Wokingham TC)
58:01
Wokingham Town Council had pupils from the local schools attend meetings and take part giving their input.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
58:35
Well, Doreen, we should always be respecting people's preferred pronouns. It's about basic manners and respect.
Steve McNay - Woughton Community Council
59:00
And this is the choice we have - we can be inclusive, or exclusive. If we decide to remain exclusive, then diversity won't happen.And I'm not telling anyone to be gender neutral, I'm suggesting that we should enable people to be involved, whoever they are.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
59:14
Absolutely, Steve!
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
59:15
Yes it is, I agree Matthew but you can’t assume everyone has the same viewpoint. I feel that it should be a choice.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
59:34
I fear some don't want to be inclusive!
Cllr Samuel Pearce-Kearney (Calne Town Council)
59:36
I have been trying to encourage people who wouldn’t normally stand. In Calne Town Council, I proposed that we don’t just put information on the website or in the notice boards because young people won’t look there. We have recently started filming videos about what the council do and what it means to be a councillor. This also helps those members of the community who struggle to read and therefore would normally be excluded.
Rosemary Whitfield Laverstock & Ford Parish Council
01:01:35
Digitally isolated is a huge consideration
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:01:51
Sounds great, Samuel!
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
01:02:22
Brilliant Samuel
Justin Griggs, NALC
01:02:34
Here's the link to what Samuel said Calne TC are doing https://www.calne.gov.uk/become-a-councillor/
Claire Goldfinch, NALC
01:03:22
Filming videos is a great idea! Recently NALC released some videos highlighting the great work that our councillors are doing. You can see them on our website here: https://www.nalc.gov.uk/our-work/local-elections
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:03:24
Absolutely, change is coming...whether people like it or not.
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:04:21
Being able to attend a meeting and then put the kids to bed afterwards really helps
Rosemary Whitfield Laverstock & Ford Parish Council
01:04:25
Council terminology is creates barriers
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:04:26
The problem is people see local councils as institutions and who wants to be in an institution ? Change that thinking and you will get people invested. We are very lucky where we live that everyone is very interested in what our council does. We are very engaged with our local people. We have now at least 4 councillors under 50 !
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:04:44
We are non political thank goodness !
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
01:05:09
I live in a commuter town and people do not get back in time for meetings
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:05:12
How do we encourage economically disadvantaged people to stand? (I say that as a working class guy myself.)
Steve McNay - Woughton Community Council
01:05:24
Is 'Parish' Council an issue? Is that a barrier with connotations to church? Should we 'rebrand'?
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:05:26
"Town" sounds very formal, "Parish" a little quaint. I think a move towards "Community Councils" would help with inclusion and engagement
angela gardner
01:05:47
HELLO
Steve McNay - Woughton Community Council
01:06:00
Hello Angela.
Lisa Courtney, SWTC Town Clerk
01:06:01
The current covid regs allowing virtual meetings concludes on 7th May (I believe) - what is the current position on this please in terms of lobbying Govt for continuance of this. It is such an inclusive means of engagement for younger people (generally)
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:06:04
I think, given recent viral events, we do need a rebrand.
Claire Goldfinch, NALC
01:06:18
You can see the campaign that Nick is talking about here: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/free-open-wifi-network-connecting-communities-during-covid-19
Steve Goodheart, Bognor Regis Town Council
01:06:20
NHS shows how it can be done INFO needs to be seen on the streets- roads / public transport showing examples of local council working for the community
Cllr Clare Gamble Billingham Town Council
01:06:35
How do councils stand on blended meetings from a legal standpoint? I think it offers great benefits in terms of inclusivity but if Councillors attend digitally, are they classed as present and eligible to vote for example?
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
01:06:57
EALC has recommended remote meetings to continue after 7th May
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:07:09
We are a town and therefore the use of it in the name is important to the residents.
Steve Goodheart, Bognor Regis Town Council
01:07:49
you don’t need party infighting at local level
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:08:02
Inclusion is not an illusion.
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:08:33
Councils and councillors need to have a thorough understanding of the geography and demography of their area.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:09:22
Let's be blunt...some folks are closed off to the idea of encouraging diversity. Sad but true.
Steve Goodheart, Bognor Regis Town Council
01:09:35
Independent candidates should be introduced as another example of having an input in the community
David Garnett
01:10:17
Do you think Parish Councilers should be paid? Can people aford to join a Parish Council.
angela gardner
01:10:25
so I am a female under 50 children with special needs and no matter who you are background its good old fashioned talking and honest talking and listening to the community you wish to serve
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:10:56
Well said, Angela.
Justin Griggs, NALC
01:11:08
Lisa here's the update from last Friday's Chief executive's bulletin: NALC is continuing to work with a range of national bodies, including the Local Government Association (LGA) and Lawyers in Local Government (LLG), to press for the facility to meet remotely to continue after May. It featured as the centrepiece of this year's NALC Lobby Day, and thanks to county association and council colleagues for contacting their MPs on this matter. Ministers have confirmed they have heard the messages. Last weekend's Sunday Telegraph story, Jackie Weaver phenomenon forces Ministers to make parish council meetings by zoom permanent, suggesting that the government may consult on this. Nonetheless, while there is continuing uncertainty, NALC's advice is that councils should now be preparing for the real possibility of a return to face-to-face meetings. NALC has produced guidance to assist with these preparations on our dedicated coronavirus webpage, where you can also find guidance on how to hold effective remote meetings
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
01:11:19
It doesn’t cost anything to sit in the council chamber and debate so why should we be paid? We can claim reasonable expenses if we travel. Training courses are paid for
Lisa Courtney, SWTC Town Clerk
01:11:25
yes, parish/town councillors should be paid and/or allowed to claim an allowance (I know legislation already allows for this). But to claim the allowance and not feel guilty about it. allowances may be needed to pay for child care, taxi, buses etc to allow participation
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:11:37
There is a Community Council for Somerset. there would be too much confusion
Steve McNay - Woughton Community Council
01:12:07
Childcare and dependence allowances for local councillors? Happens at principal level, Happens in Wales. Not lawful at English local.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:12:13
Well said, Rebecca.
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:13:35
Wow! didn’t realise that political parties took money back from their councillors. I am an independent district councillor so I only pay tax t HMRC !
Steve Goodheart, Bognor Regis Town Council
01:13:39
Maybe a way forward for the future of local democracy is for experience councillors to have a shadow candidate sitting with them learning the game
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:13:55
^^^^ excellent suggestion
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
01:14:12
Bit lost on this tariff how or what is it please
Lisa Courtney, SWTC Town Clerk
01:14:13
Allowances are allowed Steve but many are not aware of it and/or do not claim. An allowance could form a large percentage of the total precept for a small council and thus, councillors are reluctant to claim but that is discriminatory in its self
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:14:28
I did that 6 months before our last election I took them old papers and chatted through. There re a lot of us that are already engaged in this sort of work. We just dont advertise it !
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:14:51
Do we have to mention Cheshire :)
Linda Larter, Sevenoaks TC
01:15:08
part of the lack of understanding is that the whole country does not have parishes, especially in urban areas - would be easier if whole country was parished.
Hannah Graham, Hartford Parish Council
01:15:18
We have a lot more interest in our meetings since the viral meeting
Hannah Graham, Hartford Parish Council
01:15:27
And we are in Cheshire!
Linda Larter, Sevenoaks TC
01:15:47
agreed interest has increased enormously since digital
Cllr Rebecca Halifax, Cirencester Town Council
01:15:49
You can apply for expenses for childcare, but that's too simplistic an answer... also can lead to embarrassment and shame. Same as claiming for IT expenses etc. It's easy to make people feel 'othered' by having very reasonable needs to get the job done.
Sue smith woughton community council
01:15:49
At Woughton community council we are looking at having a Youth council project and chair of that will attend full council meeting. but not started yet due to co vid
David Garnett
01:15:50
If you are just sitting in a meeting, you are not doing much. You need to be working by attending other meetings etc
Steve McNay - Woughton Community Council
01:16:04
Allowances are allowed. Childcare and dependency allowances are not. This is discriminatory and exclusionary. And impacts most on women.
Gina walker Chair Eastrington PC
01:16:15
You make them feel welcome by greeting them on arrival and asking questions and introducing the rest of the council
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:16:18
People can feel very intimidated about attending a Parish Council meeting
christine
01:16:19
Surrey ALC is keen to encourage us to change from Parish to Community Council, we will ask our residents what they want.
Hannah Graham, Hartford Parish Council
01:16:33
We have done some publicity in the parish to inform that we aren’t the church, we are a civic council, and people are more interested in what we are doing now. For the first time we have four interested parties in our vacancy
Paula Heath Clevedon Town Council
01:16:39
at Clevedon we have a marked increase in visitors to the Council meetings . the impact is that we have vacancies at the moment with 10 candidates.
Hannah Graham, Hartford Parish Council
01:17:09
We have launched on Facebook more actively and this has helped a lot with understanding and engagement
Len
01:17:34
How many town and parish councils consider nutrient neutrality in building applications?
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
01:18:27
What is nutrient neutrality please?
Rachael Farrington - Voting Counts
01:18:33
Totally agree Mathew!
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:19:03
expel in our community rely on us, heir elected representatives , to do what is good for them. If anyone asks me a question I try to answer within 24 hours. Not always possible but at least I acknowledge the question. If people know you are willing to help them then they are interested in what you do. We have always had people at our meetings and now they are following us on screen. Hope this continues once we are back .
Cllr Rebecca Halifax, Cirencester Town Council
01:19:04
I chair planning for Cirencester and can confirm we examine applications fir materials and sustainability extremely carefully. We have a 'green to the core' policy - also an AONB.
Steve McNay - Woughton Community Council
01:19:23
Nutrient neutrality is a means of ensuring that development does not add to existing nutrient burdens and this provides certainty that the whole of the scheme is deliverable in line with the requirements of the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017
Caroline Ilott
01:20:06
Can we have access to some examples of other parish councils ways of engaging with community ie Facebook, newsletters etc
Deborah Jewell Daventry Town Council
01:20:09
My experience is that generally Cllrs are focussed on the services they provide or want to provide and critiquing services provided by other authorities / parties - not engaging with their public.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:20:21
Thanks, Rachael.
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
01:20:27
Thank you Steve, we have that in our Neighbourhood Plan I believe.
David Garnett
01:20:46
We are not the footsoliders! this is all about sharing of power.
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:20:53
Look out for news re an LGBT+ network/group soon.
Claire Goldfinch, NALC
01:21:59
We will share the chat in the post delegate mailing :)
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:21:59
The one good benefit of digital is that constituents can watch the programme at a later time and see the debate. It gives them the opportunity then to ask questions.
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:22:31
We should make more use of Public Participation sessions - perhaps even having dedicated sessions that are less intimidating than Full Council meetings
Elisabeth Uggerloese Bidford on Avon PC
01:23:55
I think time commitment is a barrier and being able to continue holding virtual meetings after 7th May would be very useful as it may attract younger residents with small/young children
Mathew Hulbert (Barwell Parish Council) (He/Him)
01:24:10
I've got to head off to another meeting now. Thanks, NALC, for this event. The start of an important conversation.
Nathan Potts - Thorney Parish Council
01:24:15
Great idea Robin, I will suggest that to my fellow councillors
David Garnett
01:24:59
The Borough Council act like Parish Councilers are full time and paid.
Len
01:26:01
From Len RogersHow much has the 2011 Locality Act increased the power or influence of parish and town councils?
Cllr Rebecca Halifax, Cirencester Town Council
01:26:10
🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 Chelsea
Cllr Susan Ager Witham Town Council
01:26:13
That is rubbish I am from the same council and am disgusted at these comments. She is included in everything so this is all completely untrue.
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:26:14
Councillors need to be actively nurturing their own replacements
Kate Elliott-Turner, Stotfold TC
01:26:23
well said Chelsey
Helen Griffiths Clerk Chalfont STGiles PC
01:26:24
Thank you for your suggestions. As clerk I am going to suggest a public (online) meeting where people can come and hear about the work of the Parish Council. Not a Parish Council meeting which can be rule bound but a chat session so that everyone can ask their questions.
Kate Montgomery Stroud TC
01:26:25
Yes Chelsey! Definitely!
Cllr Clare Gamble Billingham Town Council
01:26:26
So very well said Chelsea!
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:26:33
Chelsea. Well done! You are a breath of fresh air !
Nick Gardham - Community Organisers
01:26:35
Well said Chelsey
Hannah Graham, Hartford Parish Council
01:26:42
I feel the same Chelsea
Cllr Clare Gamble Billingham Town Council
01:26:49
*Chelsey
Hannah Graham, Hartford Parish Council
01:27:00
Oops chelsey
Cllr Robina Ahmed BTC
01:27:09
100% agree Chelsey
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:27:23
oops from me too Chelsey
Gina walker Chair Eastrington PC
01:27:35
well said Chelsey , and its always the same people talking . Something I’m trying to change as Chair but doesn’t go down well with some.
Cllr. Lucy Pop Buck - Rotherfield Parish Council
01:28:10
I’m with Jenny - I’ve been on a Parish Council for 18 months now and it’s taken it’s time but we’ve just sent out a survey for more community engagement to understand what people actually want us to spend money on.
Steve Goodheart, Bognor Regis Town Council
01:28:15
perishing ?????????? explain please
Steve Goodheart, Bognor Regis Town Council
01:28:34
oppsss Parishing
Paula Heath Clevedon Town Council
01:28:59
Does this not open up the discussion about training for Councillors not only about their roles but also about being an employer.
Lisa Courtney, SWTC Town Clerk
01:29:46
re engagement - anyone doing participatory budgeting? Means of asking the people how and what they want the money spent on
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:30:00
I agree with Bob - politics just doesn't work at this level
Helen Griffiths Clerk Chalfont STGiles PC
01:30:10
Agree Bob
christine
01:30:22
Our parish council is non political and has always been.
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:30:28
Ours too
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
01:30:39
Our Parish Council is non political too.
Loretta Whetlor Somerset ALC
01:31:08
No politics in our town council I’m a district councillor and an independent in a Lib Dem council. It’s frustrating !!
Sam Ross, Farmborough Parish Council
01:31:50
In my experience, PCs tend to be apolitical, but town councils aren’t. It may be down to how often these councils hold elections. Quite often, PCs barely get enough candidates to fill all the council places, but town councils tend to have more applications.
Steve Goodheart, Bognor Regis Town Council
01:32:05
Great Bob where is your area/parish
Steve McNay - Woughton Community Council
01:32:18
We have built in training expectations into our Committee Terms of Reference, for key elements. It works well
Cllr Clare Gamble Billingham Town Council
01:32:32
Unfortunately training isn't mandatory so many Councillors simply won't attend.
David Cornish
01:32:33
I'm totally in favour of 'Independents' on Parish Councils (Finchampstead parish Councillors all stand as Independents) - and I say that as Chair of a Constituency Political Party
christine
01:33:03
Surrey ALC runs excellent training courses which are very well attended.
Judeline Nicholas (she / her / hers)
01:33:03
learning and opportunities must be made available at different times of the day not just 9-5.....sorry Peter!
Claire Goldfinch, NALC
01:33:08
Do let us know what you think of today’s event!
Claire Goldfinch, NALC
01:33:19
The survey money link is on the screen now
Cllr Rebecca Halifax, Cirencester Town Council
01:33:27
Councillors to Ciren Town Council are elected on a party ticket, but we then work collaboratively cross party as an apolitical organisation.
Elisabeth Uggerloese Bidford on Avon PC
01:33:46
Thank you all - very interesting (Clerk)
Robin Layfield (Rodborough Parish Council)
01:33:54

And thank you Peter!
Cllr Clare Gamble Billingham Town Council
01:34:18
Can the survey link be put in the chat? I don't have my phone handy for the QR code.
Cllr. Doreen Titmuss Boughton Aluph And Eastwell Parish Council
01:34:19
