Council Procedures

During the current situation with Covid-19, Cornwall ALC Ltd has offered this advice:
The most important advice is that the council should adopt a broad delegation which will allow it to continue to operate outside of meetings until such time as the advice changes. Rather than using physical meetings, the council should use email and its website as far as possible to replicate debate and the gathering of public opinion. The legislation allows for the council to delegate to an officer but not individual members and the wording of the resolution below reflects the law.
In view of the above, on 11/04/20  the Cardinham Parish Council resolved :



That the Council delegates authority to the Clerk in consultation with the Chairman and
Vice Chairman to take any actions necessary with associated expenditure to protect the interests of the community and ensure council business continuity during the period of the pandemic Coronavirus, informed by consultation with the members of the council
