Covid-19 Pandemic – Legislation permitting Local Councils (and other bodies) to conduct remote meetings, in force 4th April 2020 to 6th May 2021 – The National Association of Local Councils issued a Legal Briefing note on the conduct of Local Council business:
Full details of the legislation below – The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 – :
MEETINGS DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC (FROM SPRING 2020): Parish Council meetings start at 6 p.m. but please check the Agenda for the correct time. As Covid-19 restrictions ease meetings will be in the Main Hall at the Village Hall which offers the space for safe social distancing. NB there is no meeting in August.
September 2021: the meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Tuesday 14th September and the Agenda will be published by 9th September.
PRE-PANDEMIC ARRANGEMENTS: The Parish Council meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. or 7.30 p.m. (please check the monthly agenda) in the Hazel Room at the Village Hall, except August when there are no meetings).
You can download the minutes of previous meetings below. A draft copy of the previous meeting’s minutes will be posted with the agenda for the next meeting; the approved minutes will be published after the following meeting, and will replace the draft copy.
Members of the public have no right to speak at Local Authority meetings without permission and there is no legal obligation to offer time for public participation. However, the National Association of Local Councils recommends that public participation is invited at an early stage of a meeting, and recommends this is after approval of the Minutes of the previous meeting.
Therefore, if any member of the public is present, KPC’s Chairman may exercise his discretion to give an invitation to speak after the approval of the Minutes. For practical reasons (meetings have much ground to cover), the time may be limited and there will be no later opportunity to speak again.
