Dear Councillors        

This agenda acts as a summons to attend the:



As a result of the current Coronavirus situation the Council meeting scheduled for Wednesday 7 April will now take place as an online meeting using the Zoom video conferencing application. Members of the public who wish to raise a question or “attend” the meeting therefore need to e mail the Chairman at prior to 7 April in order that an invitation to attend can be  e mailed to them. The invitations will be sent out at approximately 6.50pm on 7 April

Fifteen minute rule – to receive questions and comments from members of the public.

1          APOLOGIES To receive apologies for absence and to consider the approval of reasons given for absence.

2          DISCLOSURES OF INTEREST To receive disclosures of personal and prejudicial interest from members on matters to be considered at the meeting.  The disclosure must include the nature of the interest.  An interest must also be disclosed in the meeting when it only becomes apparent to the member during the meeting.

NB Members may remain in the meeting and take part fully in discussion and voting unless the interest is prejudicial.  A personal interest is a prejudicial interest if it is one which a member of the public, with knowledge of the relevant facts, would reasonably regard as so significant that it is likely to prejudice the

member’s judgment of the public interest.  Members must withdraw from the meeting if the interest is a prejudicial interest unless a dispensation has been obtained from the Standards Committee.  Members are reminded that under Members Code of Conduct they must register, within 28 Days, changes to their financial and other interests and notify the Monitoring Officer of any gifts and hospitality received deemed to be valued over £25.
