Drigg & Carlton Parish Council

Monthly meetings (except August) take place at the Parish Hall on the second Tuesday of the month at 7.30 pm. The Annual Meeting and AGM take place in May. Parishioners are more than welcome to attend meetings; there is a public participation section in the meeting for anyone who wants to bring anything forward.  The Parish Council has limited powers and responsibilities; however, it can advise and direct parishioners to the most appropriate authorities or relevant bodies.
