High Court dismisses claim for continuation of remote meetings
29th April 2021

The outcome of the High Court Judgement on remote meetings has now been received which means that Town and Parish Councils may only hold remote meetings up to and including Thursday 6th May.  From Friday 7th May, Councils must meet face to face.  If your parish council wishes to call a remote meeting prior to the deadline, please bear in mind that Sundays and Bank Holiday cannot be included in the ‘three clear days’ but Saturdays can.

NALC will continue to press government to introduce primary legislation to allow for remote meetings and their statement can be read here , where you can also read the full Court Judgement and the Lawyers in Local Government/Association of Democratic Service Officers press release.
