Council meetings in cyberspace

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions which mean public gatherings cannot take place and the requirement to keep our staff and councillors safe, the published calendar of meetings has been withdrawn.

We are keen to ensure the democratic process continues and we have held our first virtual committee meeting, to which the public and press were able to observe online or by telephone. There was also the provision for public to contribute to the meeting in accordance with the council’s scheme for public speaking.

We were one of only 30% of councils to run a council meeting in this way and the aim is to run more over the coming months.

We are not publishing an updated calendar of meetings here as this is very likely to change. Please visit our committee meetings webpage which will be updated regularly.

Agenda papers will be available online to download five clear working days before a meeting.

For further information please contact Democratic Services, email: quoting the Committee or subject area you are interested in - we are always happy to help.

The next virtual meeting will be for the Epsom and Walton Downs Conservators (which is not a council body but we host) on Friday 22 May 2020 at 6.30pm.
