WATCH | Governance & Resources Committee, 1 July

The 1 July meeting of our Governance & Resources Committee will be broadcast live from the Members' Room at County Hall, Matlock, from 6pm.

With no extension made by central government to the law enabling local authorities to meet remotely, Derbyshire Dales District Council has to meet in physical socially distanced spaces for the foreseeable future.

Our own Council Chamber at Matlock Town Hall is not big enough or well ventilated enough to safely hold reduced-number meetings.

Please note that as around 20 councillors and officers will be attending this meeting, any attendance by members of the public will be restricted to only a handful of people on a first come first served basis due to the venue's reduced Covid capacity.

That's why we're recommending that if local people have any representations to make on the agenda items that they make these in writing no later than midday on 30 June by:
Until April the District Council was able to meet by Zoom, but the emergency law enabling remote meetings has now expired. The extension to no earlier than 19 July of the government's further relaxation of Covid restrictions means that large group meetings cannot at the moment be held indoors.

Anyone attending the 6pm meeting, which will be recorded for viewing later on the District Council's YouTube channel, should:
  • Follow public health advice
  • Maintain social distancing
  • Use the hand sanitiser provided
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Follow the instructions for safe and socially distant movement around the venue and wear a face covering at all times (unless exemptions apply)
  • Sign into the venue using the NHS Covid 19 app
You should not attend if you are unwell, symptomatic with Covid-19, are a confirmed case or are a confirmed contact of someone who is self-isolating.

It is not mandatory for attendees to have taken a voluntary lateral flow test before attending this meeting, but, as restrictions continue to be eased by central Government, public health officials have advised that we should all be getting tested regularly.

Lateral flow tests are available for free. It’s quick and easy to apply for testing kits online. You can either order for home delivery (generally arrives the day after you apply) or order to click collect from a wide range of pharmacies and other venues.
