Local Authority meetings during coronavirus social distancing period

The government minister from Housing, Communities and Local Government wrote to all local councils in early April to advise that all local authority meetings before 7 May 2021 are to be held remotely and has removed the need for a local authority to hold an annual meeting this year.

The government has postponed the holding of  local by-elections and other polls that would have taken place before 6 May 2021.
