Covid-19 Pandemic Announcement
The emergency legislation
Local councils are now permitted to meet remotely; postpone their annual parish council meeting for 12 months and only hold least 3 meetings between April 2020 and May 2021. The postponement of the elections which were to have been held on 7 May 2020 and the annual parish council meeting means all local councillors will continue for another 12 months unless they wish otherwise. There are also changes to the audit schedule under the emergency legislation.
A brief update from Thornborough Parish Council (TPC)
It is business as usual where possible. For example, this week the audit was submitted to the internal auditor and the 2020/21 allotment licences were sent out. All local councils have been strongly advised to have a ‘practice’ remote meeting or technical rehearsal at which decisions cannot be made because the public are not present. TPC held a successful practice meeting on Monday 20 March to ensure we are ready to hold a remote meeting when we need one.
At the present time there is no urgent business requiring a remote meeting. When this changes, and of course it will, the meeting will be announced on the TPC noticeboard and website as is our normal practice. We will also use Thornborough eNews to publicise the meeting. The agenda for the meeting will explain what residents need to do to join the remote TPC meeting by phone or video conference.
In the meantime, please let me know if you wish to bring anything to the attention of TPC - see below for my email address and phone number.
