Important information for members regarding COVID-19

Members of the council not on the committee are now permitted to register and speak at the meeting.


Due to current government guidance surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, members are required to dial into the meeting remotely and must not attend the Civic Centre. These restrictions do not apply to the Chair.


Please email in order to register your intent to speak before 12 noon on Friday 15 January 2021. A meeting link will then be sent to you.

Important information for members of the public regarding COVID-19

Unfortunately, due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19 we are unable to allow members of the public to speak at this meeting. These measures are temporary and will be reviewed as circumstances and the current restrictions change.


However, written representations are being received and can be read out at the meeting with a written response provided.


If you would like to make representations on any of the items below please email no later than noon on Friday 15 January 2021.



Apologies for absence


Declarations of Interest

Members are requested to indicate at this stage in the proceedings any items on the agenda in which they intend to declare an interest. Members are reminded that if the interest is a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest (as defined in the Members’ Code of Conduct) they must leave the room for the whole of that item. If the interest is not a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest, but is such that a member of the public could reasonably regard it as being so significant that it is likely that it would prejudice their judgment of the public interest (as explained in the Code of Conduct) then they may make representations, but then must leave the meeting for the remainder of the item.
