Following the relaxation of Covid restrictions, we have reviewed the arrangements for public attendance at meetings of the Council. We have increased the public seating capacity of our meeting spaces to allow the maximum permitted under fire regulations to 70 for cabinet and committee meetings, and 30 for full council meetings. We shall continue to monitor and follow Government advice.
We are very aware, however, that many residents are still apprehensive about large indoor gatherings and we shall continue to live-stream all public meetings. The live broadcast and the subsequent recordings provide you the freedom to watch proceedings at your leisure. These can be viewed from the respective meeting date web page or via our YouTube channel. Live-streaming and recording of meetings is not a statutory requirement and whilst every endeavour will be made to broadcast our meetings, this cannot be guaranteed.
If you wish to attend a meeting in person, please refer to the agenda front page which specifies the location and start time. If you require any advice regarding the attendance of meetings please contact Democratic Services on 01202 096660.
