Decision status: Information Only

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


As set out in the report at Appendix A of the agenda (refer Minute 5 above), central Government had lifted the statutory requirement on local authorities to hold an Annual Meeting of the Council for 2020.  The Council was advised, therefore, that there would be no Annual Meeting of the Council in 2020.

In these circumstances, and in accordance with The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020, the Council noted that Councillor Margaret Thompson will remain in office as Mayor until the Annual Meeting in May 2021 or until the Council determines otherwise, whichever is the earlier.
