Sutton is a small civil parish - population about 110 - located almost 6 miles to the west of Peterborough in north-west of Cambridgeshire.
Sutton Parish Council comprises five councillors who serve a four year term. The Council normally meets bi-monthly. It holds it’s Annual Parish Council Meeting (at which the Chairman and Vice Chairman are elected) and the Annual Parish Meeting in May.
Parish councils make all manner of decisions on issues that affect the local community. Probably the most common topics that parish councils become involved with are planning matters (they are statutory consultees), crime prevention, managing open spaces and campaigning for, and delivering, better services and facilities.
The schedule of meetings for the coming year are shown on the Agendas & Minutes page. Agendas are posted on village noticeboards and on the website at least three days before each meeting is convened. The venue for all Sutton Parish Council meetings is St. Michael’s Hall (actually the Church nave). The public is welcome, and indeed encouraged, to attend and provision is made at all meetings for public participation.
