MEETINGS

Parish council meetings are currently suspended, however the government has brought in legislation for all councils to be able to hold virtual meetings using online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. The Zoom platform has been successfully used by Ellistown and Battleflat Parish Council and the council will continue to hold meetings on a virtual platform until restrictions are lifted by the government. The virtual meetings are open to the public and instructions on how to join the meeting online will be issued as part of the agenda. Once we have set a date for the virtual meeting it will be advertised on here, on the noticeboards and social media in the usual way.
