Following expiry of the temporary Covid legislation which permitted remote local council meetings (The Local Authorities and Crime Panels (Coronavirus)(Flexibility of Meetings)(England and Wales) Regulations 2020), the Town Council was not able to hold remote meetings after 6 May 2021. Face to face meetings resumed with Covid mitigation measures on 21 June 2021, following the normal Calendar of Meetings.
While meetings could not be held or when a decision is required sooner than a scheduled meeting, the Council has resolved to delegate authority to the Proper Officer (the Town Clerk) for decision making, subject to approval by email of a majority of councillors and with the exemption of certain matters which may not legally be delegated.
To allow for democratic process, Councillors who sit on the relevant body (Council, committee or sub committee) will be asked to consider the decision in question and to approve this by email.
Below you will find details of decisions being requested from Councillors in this way. Should you have any comments you wish to make, please contact your Town Councillors. You may choose to contact the Chair of the relevant committee, all members of that committee, or your own ward councillor.
