Our Local Review Body meeting on Monday 25 May will be open to the public to view live.

So too will the Local Review Body meeting on Monday 1 June.

This move follows a successful meeting of our Planning and Building Standards Committee on Monday 17 May, which the public were not able to attend, but which members of the media were allowed to view.

Tracey Logan, our Chief Executive: 

“This is an important next step in the Council being able to take decisions with absolute transparency while continuing to adhere to guidance on public meetings and social distancing.

“We will continue to review how these initial online meetings operate prior to confirmation of a calendar for future Council meetings involving greater numbers of Councillors, Council officers and agenda items.”

Access to online meetings and a guide for the public are available.

You can also fill in a survey to provide feedback.
