Parish Council Meetings & Covid 19

Parish Council meetings are normally held in the Village School on the first Wednesday of alternate months, except for August. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, this is not possible for the foreseeable future. In order to continue to fulfill our responsibilities to the community, the Parish Council has decided (and in line with government approved legislation) that meetings will now be held remotely via Zoom, until social distancing regulations are ended. The agenda for these meetings will normally be restricted to:
– Standing order items
– Finance – review of finances, approval of expenditure, internal audit
– Maintenance, Village Garden (Urgent items only)
– Covid-19 – any points to communicate/actions required, community support
– Planning – responses to applications received and review of decisions
Under normal circumstances residents are welcome to attend all meetings without the need for prior notification, but now anyone wishing to “attend” a meeting will need to notify the Parish Council at least 5 days prior to the meeting for access arrangements to be made. To gain access, contact the Parish Clerk via northrigtonparishcouncil@gmail.com stating your interest.
NB The first of these remote meetings will be held on Wednesday 6th May, commencing at 7.30pm. Future remote meetings will be held on the first Wednesday of alternate months, all commencing at 7.30pm. In line with Government regulations, the Annual Parish Meeting will not now be held, until social distancing regulations are ended.
