Arrangements for dealing with Council business during Covid-19 lockdown

The Council cannot hold meetings during the Covid-19 crisis. Delegated authority has been given to the Town Clerk, in agreement with an Emergency Consultation Panel to deal with the business that the Town Council would normally attend to. Notes detailing decisions made will be posted on the Council’s website on the same pages where minutes of the Council or its committees are normally displayed.

Covid 19 – Town Council Office Closure

In response to the Covid 19 Emergency,  the Town Council offices have closed from today, 17  March, and staff are working from home. This decision was made to avoid the risk of cross contamination between staff and to ensure resilience of the Council’s support services. This decision was made before, but reinforced by, a decision of the District Council to close The Beacon. My staff are confident that they can continue to give the Town Council the support it needs. If you need to contact the Town Council, please email If there is a need to make telephone contact please call 07810 388580.
