South Holland District Council meetings are postponed while waiting for Government guidance
Non-essential council meetings have been postponed while uncertainty remains over social distancing.
South Holland District Council is no longer able to hold formal virtual meetings following the expiry of temporary regulations last month and is still waiting for further guidance from the Government over social distancing.
A council spokesperson said: “Whilst we were able to hold the essential annual general meeting physically at Springfields Event Centre last month, with social distancing and safety measures in place, this is a difficult and limiting option that brings additional costs to the council.
“We are now awaiting updated Government Guidance on the use of our buildings and the holding of physical meetings.
"As the next stage of the lifting of restrictions will not happen before June 21, and as we do not yet know whether the rules on social distancing will change, non-essential meetings have been postponed until more information is available.
"This will help us to ensure the safety of councillors, officers and the public, whilst avoiding unnecessary cost to the taxpayer.”
