Period covered by Plan:






All public Committee meetings of the Council where the public can attend have been suspended.† Following on from the Prime Ministerís announcement on 23 March 2020 about fundamental restrictions on public travel and movement, the Leader of the Council, Cllr Carl Les, has stopped all public, committee meetings of the Council for the foreseeable future.†† The council business will continue but in a different way. Emergency powers have been invoked that enable the Chief Executive, Richard Flinton, to make decisions that would previously have been made by the Councilís committees.† We will keep the position under review as the Government consider drafting legislation and regulations to allow for virtual meetings and we will consider how best to engage with the public to ensure that good governance, transparency and public engagement is maintained during this time.





In accordance with the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements)(Meetings and Access to information)(England) Regulations 2012, at least 28 clear daysí notice, excluding the day of notification and the day of decision taking, must be published on the Forward Plan of any intended key decision.† It is also a requirement that 28 clear daysí notice is published of the intention to hold a Executive meeting or any part of it in private for the consideration of confidential or exempt information.† For further information and advice please contact the Democratic Services and Scrutiny Manager on 01609 533531.
