Last month the council’s first fully virtual meeting was held on 22 April where the Planning Committee approved two applications related to Newtown Railway Works.

The meeting was one of the first in the county to be held virtually via Microsoft Teams Live Event.

The council is following recent Government guidance and new national regulations which allows important decisions to continue to be taken at virtual meetings during the current coronavirus crisis.

The Government has urged local councils to use the new procedures to ensure decisions of importance to communities and the economy, including planning decisions, continue to be made.

Public consultations on planning applications will continue to take place in the usual way.
