Council Meetings

COVID-19 – The Parish Council has agreed these adjustments to meeting arrangements in the current ‘lockdown’ situation:

These meetings will be held ‘virtually’.  These meetings will be held remotely (via Google Meet) under arrangements set out in special statutory arrangements currently enacted for meetings.  [These arrangements ceased on 7 May 2021]

These meetings have been cancelled.

Public attendance at in-person meetings during the ongoing period of Covid risk concern.  Members of the public are able to attend in-person meetings but please be aware that, given ongoing Covid transmission risks, safety measures in place will include a limit on numbers in the meeting room, social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand sanitising. To ensure that the numbers limit is not exceeded, those wishing to attend are asked to book a seat by emailing or calling 01798 815305 by noon on the date of the meeting above.   [The full risk-assessment for these meetings can be found here.]
