Meeting Protocol

a] Meeting discipline to be managed by the Committee or Council Chairman as appropriate.

This will effectively replicate a live meeting.

b] Admission of public/press must be as under the usual arrangements. Any member of the public must be admitted but only parishioners, those with a particular interest or those present by invitation can ask questions of the Council.

c] However it was agreed to ask members of the public to IDENTIFY THEMSELVES at the start of the meeting and to SUBMIT WRITTEN QUESTIONS IN ADVANCE via the Clerk.

d] Everyone would be requested to be visible by VIDEO link and should be on MUTE until invited by the Chairman to speak.

e] Failure by members of the public to identify themselves will mean that any comments made cannot be recorded in the formal minutes of the meeting.

f] Members of the public will be asked to leave the meeting whilst any planning application in which they have a particular interest is further discussed and voted upon. This is to prevent any undue influence being placed on councillors. The decisions in respect of all planning applications will be formally recorded in the minutes as public record.
