52/01/21CL: To resolve council support for extension of Covid-19 regulations due to expire in May 2021

The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels came in to force on 4 April. Broadly speaking, the 2020 Regulations enable local councils and parish meetings to hold remote meetings (including by video and telephone conferencing) for a specified period until 7 May 2021.

 

These regulations apply to local authority meetings that are required to be held, or held, before 7 May 2021. This means that, without any further action from the government, all local authorities including local councils must return to face to face meetings from 7 May.

 

NALC is working with a number of national bodies to press the government to extend these regulations beyond this date and will continue to stress the urgency and importance of this issue.  KALC has requested that local councils correspond with their MP to encourage them to support an extension of the regulations permitting remote meetings.

 

Members are requested to resolve correspondence be sent to Gareth Johnson MP requesting his support for the above action.
