Virtual council meetings given the green light
New regulations passed on 2 April 2020 give the green light for parish and town councils to hold council meetings remotely for a temporary period. These regulations come into effect on 4 April 2020 and run to (and include) 6 May 2021, although this end-date could be brought forward if social distancing rules are relaxed or removed. We've written to our subscribers with more detail. Read the explanatory memorandum to these regulations.
