Parish Council Meeting postponed until 17th May 2021

Posted: Wed, 05 May 2021 13:18 by Lucy Flavin

Prior to the COVID-19 the law did not permit Parish Councils to meet remotely, it was as a result of the pandemic that emergency powers were put in place to allow for virtual meetings. These powers come to an end on 7 May 2021 and recently the High Court ruled that meetings under the 1972 Act must again take place with the participants gathering face-to-face at a designated physical location.

This ruling brings new challenges to Parish and Town Council's. Although Parish Council Meetings are a permitted organised gathering under the Coronavirus legislation, at present guidance for the reopening of village halls prevents re-opening before 17th May. For this reason, the May meeting of the Parish Council has been postponed until 17th May 2021. This delay will also allow the Council to undertake a full risk assessment of the meeting and ensure that all reasonable measures are taken to limit the risk of transmission of the virus.

As usual details of the meeting, including the agenda and meeting paperwork, will be made available on the website. Information regarding social distancing and other measures to ensure the safety of all attendees will also be made available closer to the time.

Anyone who has any concerns regarding the arrangements for the Parish Council meeting or would like to take part in the session for public participation but does not feel comfortable in attending the meeting in person should contact the Clerk on 01949 222478 or at » Less
