IMPORTANT MESSAGE:

COVID-19 and information regarding future meetings

The COVID-19/ Coronavirus pandemic and the unprecedented in peacetime
Government measures in response to the crisis (e.g. prohibitions on gatherings, social distancing, self-isolation and shielding of those deemed to be the most vulnerable) have meant that the requirement for local authorities to hold public meetings in person with all members present in one place cannot be met. In recognition of the problem of holding and attending meetings, and further to the lobbying of NALC and others, the Government included s.78 in the Coronavirus Act 2020. This section gave the Secretary of State the power to make Regulations to make provisions for the holding of meetings. The 2020 Regulations set out those provisions.

  • The 2020 Regulations permit the holding of remote meetings, with conditions.
  • Local councils can decide the methods they will use to facilitate the holding of remote meetings.
  • There is no requirement to hold an annual meeting.

Please find below a copy of NALC’s Legal Topic Note providing further details on the Regulations:

L01-20-The-Local-Authorities-and-Police-and-Crime-Panels-(Coronavirus)-(Flexibility-of-Local-Authority-and-Police-and-Crime-Panel-Meetings)-(England-and-Wales)-Regulations-2020

The Council has adopted the following ‘Scheme of Delegation’ to delegate certain duties to the Clerk and enable the continued running of the council in these unprecedented times.
