Emergency Delegated Powers replace Parish Council Meetings in June

At the ordinary meeting of the Parish Council on 4th May 2021 the Clerk reported that a High Court judgement on virtual meetings has concluded that primary legislation is required allow local authority “meetings” under the 1972 Act to take place remotely.   Therefore from 7 May parish and town councils will no longer be able to meet remotely, and council meetings will only be able to take place in physical settings.

 

There was a discussion in which cllrs shared views on face-to-face meetings resuming.  After the discussion it was RESOLVED that the parish council would not hold a meeting on 8th June and to accept and adopt Emergency Delegated Powers until the end of June.  At the end of June the Clerk will consult with the Chair and Vice Chair as to whether a meeting would be called for the 13th July, or continue with delegated powers for a further month.
