Full Council Meeting - Tuesday 19th May 2020

Council meetings during the coronavirus pandemic

Following the approval by Welsh Government of the Local Authorities (Coronavirus) (Meetings) (Wales) Regulations 2020, the Town Council now has the power to hold meetings of the Town Council remotely.

Over the past couple of weeks, the Town Council has been exploring the most appropriate means to do this. After considering various platforms available, the Town Council has decided to use Zoom to host its meetings. This platform will allow Councillors, staff and members of the public to participate in Full Council meetings on a remote basis. It allows for access to both those with IT and those without IT, as it can be accessed by telephone also.

The Town Council have produced guidance on how to access Town Council meetings. There is also a copy of the meeting protocols available to view online and a guide to Public Question Time.

The Town Council would like to thank the community for their continued patience at this time. The first remote meeting of the Town Council will be held on Tuesday 19th May at 6.30pm.

The agenda is available to view below. The accompanying documents contain important information in relation to how Council meetings, under this new arrangement, shall be conducted.
