NALC Chair, Cllr Keith Stevens, attended a ministerial roundtable, issues covered the challenges facing councils in supporting the pandemic response, social care, provisional local government finance settlement and remote meetings.
On remote meetings, ministers were urged to introduce emergency legislation.
We'd like to again ask for your help on this important issue!
Firstly, please consider using two model letters for councillors and councils to highlight the support of remote council meetings to your MP and ministers; these can be adapted and include examples of your own experiences.
Secondly, please email us at email@example.com with examples of the impact from difficulties you are facing such as cancelled meetings, inquorate meetings or where staff or councillors are unwilling to attend meetings due to health risks.
