Meetings during the Coronavirus pandemic
The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 (“the 2020 Regulations”) came into force on 4 April. Broadly speaking, the 2020 Regulations enable local councils to hold remote meetings (including by video and telephone conferencing) for a specified period until May next year. They also remove the requirement to hold an annual meeting. The 2020 Regulations apply to local council meetings, committee and sub-committee meetings in England.
Rumburgh Parish Council will hold virtual meetings (via Skype at Rumburgh Parish Council) when necessary. The Council await guidance from the UK Government as to when physical meetings can resume.

At their meeting on 8th January 2020, councillors agreed to the planting of a hedgerow on the southern boundary of the allotments, using trees provided by the Woodland Trust. This is part of an initiative by the Woodland Trust to help counter the loss of natural habitats for wildlife that have been lost on an unprecedented scale since the 1970s.
