Coronavirus Act 2020

The Coronavirus Act 2020 enables parish councils to meet ‘remotely’ (i.e. by video or teleconference or by live streaming amongst other means) and provides for the press and public to also attend the meeting ‘remotely’. If you wish to do so, please e mail the Clerk at least 20 minutes before the meeting starts so that you can be sent a link to join the meeting. Members of the press and public are advised to email the Clerk as far in advance as possible as if technical issues prevent them from joining the meeting it will not be possible to provide technical support once the meeting has started. As with normal meetings, you will only be permitted to speak at the Chairman’s discretion and you are therefore requested to ensure your device is muted at all times unless invited to speak.
