Finance & Corporate Governance Committee

Date
Tuesday, 22nd June 2021 10:00am

Whilst all Council meetings must be held face-to-face from 7th May, there will still be limits on how members of the public can gather and mix indoors. As the safety of residents, councillors, and staff is of the utmost importance, there will be necessary capacity limits in the Roden Suite  to allow for social distancing between councillors, staff, and any attendees (max 20 people, including councillors and staff). To further minimise the risk of transmission, and to avoid having to turn people away at the door, we would urge residents to carefully consider whether they need to attend this meeting in person.
