The Government has introduced regulations to provide as much flexibility to local councils in organising meetings going forward. The relevant legislation is The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (flexibility of Local Authority Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 no.392. These regulations temporarily replace the meeting requirements set out in the Local Government Act 1972.
Council meetings will therefore take place virtually on the Zoom platform. Details of how to connect to meetings can be found on the appropriate meeting agenda.
