Important information for members of the public


Following the end of temporary legislation allowing for public meetings to be conducted entirely virtually, it is now possible for public speakers to attend a meeting and speak in person. However, because we still need to follow government advice on indoor gatherings and social distancing, the seating available for members of the public will be severely restricted. We therefore would urge you to observe proceedings or participate remotely if possible. If you feel you really need to be present in person, please contact Democratic Services and request a place. Seats might only become available when other people leave the meeting.
