May Statement

Boddington Parish Council: Press statement

At the virtual meeting (via Zoom) of the Parish Council held on Wednesday May 6th, the question of the Annual Parish Meeting, which should have been held on April 19th was discussed.  In accordance with Government regulations regarding Covid 19 and gatherings of people, this meeting was inevitably cancelled.  Government regulations remain in place and these have affected Local Government Standing Orders including those of Boddington Parish Council. As a result, there will be no Annual Parish Meeting this year.  Should parishioners have issues they would have raised for discussion at the Annual Parish Meeting, Councillors hope they will convey these to the Clerk.  

The Government announced in March that the elections that were to be held this month, are to be deferred until May 2021.  This has, of course, affected this Parish Council but all current Councillors have agreed to remain in post until then.  Should a vacancy arise the Council will co-opt until the elections are reinstated.  The Officers of the Council will remain as standing.

The Parish Council will continue to meet, via Zoom, on the 1st Wednesday of the month until current restrictions allow meetings to be held in person. The Zoom meeting details will be at the head of each month’s agenda.
