When the UK entered in to the first lockdown local councils were permitted to host it’s meetings virtually thanks to a temporary change in legislation. It has been announced that the Government will not allow for meetings to continue this way after the 6th May 2021 and so face-to face meeting will resume. However due to restrictions on community halls, where Parish meetings have historically been held, there may be the need to reduce the number of meetings due to the reduced availability of hall space.
Bearsted Parish Council have decided to enable our Annual Parish Meeting and our Annual Meeting of the Council, to go ahead we will for the first time hold these virtually. The Annual Parish Meeting has changed to the 4th May at 18.30 and we invite all residents to attend to hear what has been achieved over the past year and ask any questions you have to Parish Councillors. The Annual Meeting of the Council has been changed to the 5th May at 19.30.
