Annual Town Meeting

The Annual Town Meeting is not a meeting of the Council itself, but a meeting of the electors of the Parish.

The Meeting is usually chaired by the Town Mayor. The purpose of the meeting is so that the Town Council can report on what it has done over the last year. It also enables the electors to have a say on anything they consider is an important issue for the people of the Town. Other local organisations be be invited to send a representative to speak about the work of their organisation. 

Normally it must be held at least once per year, between April and June. In Skipton the last Annual Town Meeting was on the 11th April 2024.

Only those who appear on the register of electors for the Skipton Parish can vote on any resolution, although the meeting is open to anyone.
