If you're planning to attend a meeting

Whilst our meetings are open to the public, due to the current COVID-secure arrangements for meetings there is limited capacity for public attendees and a full risk assessment is in place.

Anyone not registered to speak is encouraged to watch the meeting via the webcast, rather than attend the meeting in person.

Whilst residents are permitted to attend, they are encouraged to send their questions to their local ward Member to ask on their behalf. Anyone attending the meeting is encouraged to take a home test 2 to 3 days prior to attending the meeting and on the morning of the meeting itself and only attend if that test is negative.
