Community Councils

Covid-19 Coronavirus

Please note that due to the recent government advice for people to distance themselves from other people as much as possible, all face to face Community Council meetings have been cancelled until restrictions have been lifted.  This is to protect everyone in the community.  Further information will be available as and when things change.

Some Community Councils are holding remote meetings using either Microsoft Teams, Webex or Zoom.  If you are interested in the remote meetings then please get in touch with the Community Council Liaison Officer.
