NALC and the Local Government Association call for the Government to allow councils to use virtual and hybrid council meetings options again.

To support NALC's efforts, they have launched a survey looking at the impacts of returning exclusively to in-person meetings since May 2021. The survey is designed to capture the reflections of those responsible for or running statutory and decision-making meetings in councils over the past six months.

The survey is intended for an Officer to complete and is also open to Local Councils.

Please only submit one survey per Council. Duplicates may result in all submissions from the same council being removed from the data set.

The deadline for submissions is 12 November 2021.

There are no further consultations that we are aware of at this time
