Due to the Covid-19 virus and the government advice on gatherings, all Council events, Committee and Working Group meetings, that would usually be held, have been cancelled.
New legislation has now come into force to allow virtual meetings [The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020] and so all Council and Committee meetings will now be taking place virtually using the software Zoom until government guidelines change.
The Staffing Committee meetings are not open to the public.
The Council will be asked to RESOLVE to exclude the press and public “by reason of the confidential nature of the business” to be discussed and in accordance with the Public Bodies (Admission to Meetings) Act 1960
The minutes are draft until approved at the next committee meeting
