Scrutiny Panel

In light of recent events and following the latest Government advice on the Coronavirus, the Council has cancelled all its scheduled council and committee meetings until 11 May 2020. The law has now changed to permit Local Authorities to hold virtual meetings and the Council is urgently reviewing how and when a schedule of such meetings may be implemented.

In the meantime, the Council is committed to maintaining full transparency in the decision making process during this period.
