Online attendance at council meetings is no longer legal but the council considers that there remains a serious risk to health when meeting in person indoors. Consequently, the Council delegates its powers to an Urgency Committee.
Committees will meet online as advisory committees and will discuss business as usual. The recommendations and decisions will be advisory until they are ratified by the Urgency Committee.
Members of the public can continue to attend the advisory committee meetings via the joining link and apply to participate in the public participation section of the meeting.
Non-members of the Committee and members of the public may view the meeting through the joining link but the provisions of the Council’s public participation scheme will not apply.
The urgency committee will consist of five members. In accordance with standing orders the quorum will be three members and the provisions for substitute members will apply.
Meetings will take place subject to risk assessment and the Covid security precautions.
