Council meetings during the coronavirus pandemic

The government's social distancing instructions mean council, committee and cabinet meetings cannot take place in the usual way. However, new legislation has been introduced to enable councils to hold meetings remotely.

We've made some temporary arrangements to allow meetings to take place.

Business will be conducted using a video call with a basic stream of proceedings available on our YouTube channel.

The dates, times and agendas for all our meetings are available online.

Like face-to-face meetings, it may be necessary to exclude the press and public if there would be disclosure of confidential or exempt information. If this is the case, the live stream will be switched off and the meeting will continue in private.

You still have the opportunity to take part in remote meetings in line with our constitution.

If you wish to ask a public question, participate in the 'opportunity to speak' scheme during planning committee, or speak at an overview and scrutiny commission meeting, please contact [email protected] or call 01423 500600.

Please see our remote meetings protocol and our privacy notice.
