The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has updated its guidance on the Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020.  Regulations that came into force on 1 August amend these Regulations.

In summary:

  • We can continue to meet remotely until May 2021
  • There is still no requirement to hold an annual meeting
  • Cllr Scott, the current chair, will remain in place until an annual meeting is held (possibly next year) unless the council decide to elect a replacement earlier.

The joining link for our monthly  remote meetings will be included in the public notice for the meeting from September 2020.
