Your Council

Nun Monkton Parish Council comprises five councillors appointed through Local Elections, usually every four years. 

The councillors elect their Chairman and Vice-Chairman annually at the May council meeting, which usually follows an Annual Parish Meeting. 

Bi-monthly meetings start at 7.00pm and are held, usually in The Barn behind the Alice Hawthorn, on the third Thursday of alternate months, starting in January.  

Agendas are posted on the Parish Council noticeboard outside the Alice Hawthorn Inn at least three days before each meeting and also distributed by the village email.

The public are invited and welcome to attend the meetings. There is a period set aside before the formal start of the meeting for members of the public to raise any concerns or ask questions.

The council has the power to raise money through taxation, the precept. The Council determines the amount of precept as a part of its annual budget setting and this is collected on the council’s behalf by Harrogate Borough Council through the Council Tax.
