UPDATE: Full Council to go ahead - advice and guidance
The scheduled meeting of Full Council is due to be held tonight from 7.30pm at our Brympton Way offices in Yeovil.
Matters to be considered by our elected members will include changes to our constitution which will allow for the delegation of decision making during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and the adoption of the design guide for the Yeovil Refresh project.
The meeting, guided by current legislation, will be open to the public and press. However, given the Government’s strong advice on social distancing and the advice to those who may be vulnerable or have underlying health conditions, we will be broadcasting the council meeting on Youtube to allow those who wish to see proceedings but not attend to do so online.
Anyone who wishes to attend is asked to wash their hands in the facilities we provide and to please keep their distance from others.
Council Leader Val Keitch said: “Public safety, the safety of our officers and the safety of our elected members is our priority.
“We are aware that the Government is advising people to avoid large gatherings and gatherings in smaller public spaces. As such, we hope members of the public will follow the meeting online rather than travel to Brypton Way. But, if you do wish to attend, please help us to keep others safe by washing your hands and keeping a safe distance from those around you.”
