COVID-19: Council and Committee Meetings

How the Coronavirus is affecting decision-making meetings, like Planning and Licensing Committee meetings.

The Government has given councils new powers to hold public meetings ‘virtually’ using video or telephone-conferencing technology. We have already held a few successful meetings online, ensuring openness and transparency by allowing residents to listen-in to meetings and/or recordings of any virtual meeting via the Council website.

To find out when the next virtual Council meeting will be held visit our meetings page.

In the meantime residents and ward councillors can still keep track of upcoming key decisions via the Forward Plan, looking at how we can ensure residents can continue to participate in local decision making.
