COVID 19 - Parish Meetings 

Following government advice on the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and under new legislation*which came into force on 4 April 2020 the Parish Council has cancelled the Annual Parish Meeting scheduled for 13 May 2020 and the Annual Meeting of the Council scheduled for 18 May 2020.

Under Regulation 4 of the new regulations, appointments continue. Therefore the current 2019/20 Council structure will remain until an annual meeting of the Council is held next year. 

* The Local Authorities And Police And Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility Of Local Authority And Police And Crime Panel Meetings) (England And Wales) Regulations 2020

Regulation 5 covers remote attendance; extending the definition of “place” to include more than one location and including electronic, digital or virtual locations. It goes on to set out all the conditions that must be complied with, making sure the member attending remotely can be heard and where possible seen by other members and by the press and public and can hear and preferably see the other members.

Regulation 13 modifies the Public Bodies (Admission to Meetings) Act 1960 allowing for remote attendance by the press and public. Clerks should note that Regulation 13 (a) requires any electronic notice of a meeting to be published on the local authority’s website and does not negate the normal requirement under Local Government Act 1972 Schedule 12 Part II Paragraph 10 (2) (a) to publish a notice in a conspicuous place.

The Regulations come with an explanatory memorandum which can be accessed here.
