As a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and following consultation with the Leader, Chairs and Vice-Chairs of Committees and the Chief Executive, the following meetings have been cancelled:

Planning Site Visit (30 March 2020), Standards Committee (30 March 2020), Employment Committee (31 March 2020), Taxi and Miscellaneous Committee (1 April 2020), Planning Committee (2 April 2020) and Overview and Scrutiny Management Committee (3 April 2020), which will only take place if formal call in is exercised.

We are currently expecting Cabinet on 15 April to proceed with an essential item only agenda.

The Full Council meeting scheduled for 2pm on 16 April 2020 is still scheduled to go ahead. The meeting will have a reduced agenda. 

Prior to that Full Council meeting an Extraordinary Council meeting may still take place on the 16 April but at 1.45 pm rather than 11am in order to officially confer the title of Honorary Alderman upon former Councillors Carl Crompton and Stuart Greenhalgh. 

No ceremony will take place and will be done at a later date.

All meetings following the 16 April and up until the end of the Municipal year remain under review.
