Annual Council Meeting

12/04/2021 - Annual Council Meeting

The Committee received a verbal update from the Town Clerk concerning the Annual Council Meeting.


The Meeting had been scheduled virtually for 12th May 2021 but The Local Authorities & Police & Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority & Police & Crime Panels Meetings) (England & Wales) Regulations 2020 was due to end on 7th May, meaning an in-person meeting would need to take place.


As it was unclear whether this legislation would be extended, Members agreed it was sensible to bring the Annual Council forward to ensure the statutory business of this meeting could take place. As local elections were taking place on Thursday 6th May, Tuesday 4th May was proposed as the new date and accepted by the Council.




That Witney Town Council’s Annual Council meeting is re-scheduled from Wednesday 12th May to Tuesday 4th May 2021, to be held virtually.
