Roads Committee Nominations 2020
Latest Information as at Thursday 3rd December 2020
The information on this page has been updated on 3rd December 2020, following the latest government COVID guidelines announced in the preceding days:
The Parish had a scheduled Parish Assembly on 9th December, originally to receive nominations and elect members of its Parish Roads Committee.
In light of recent developments and changes in government COVID guidelines, the Constable has concluded that it is not safe or practicable to ask parishioners to attend an Assembly to elect members to the Parish Roads Committee at this time.
In order to meet legal requirements, the Parish Assembly will proceed at 7pm on Wednesday 9th
December to receive nominations for Roads Committee members. Nominations will be formally received at the Assembly and, if there are more candidates nominated than the five available positions, the Constable will then defer the election of those nominated until May 2021, when it is hoped that the planned vaccination programme will have commenced and infection rates will have considerably reduced.
Candidates wishing to stand for the Roads Committee should still contact the Parish Secretary, Alison Sweeney, at firstname.lastname@example.org
or 811880, by 5pm on Monday 7th December.
The Parish Assembly will still be available to ‘attend’ online via Zoom. Parishioners wishing to ‘attend’ via Zoom, should contact the Parish Secretary by 5pm on Tuesday 8th December.
It is hoped that the current Roads Committee will continue until the election can take place.
