New arrangements for the proceedings of the LLDC Board and Committees have been put in place from 7 May 2021. 

These arrangements are set out in the LLDC Scheme for Remote Decision-Making 2021. The provisions of the Scheme will apply for as long as the Chair considers it appropriate on the basis it is not desirable or appropriate for meetings to be convened and held physically in-person having regard (without limitation) to the current and developing risks to public health posed by Covid-19, the practicality and availability of members to meet in person in compliance with social distancing guidance and requirements.

Under the Remote Decision-Making Scheme, the Corporation Chair or the Committee Chairs have a delegation from the Board to decide whether it is appropriate or desirable to transact business either at an in-person meeting, or with decisions being taken by the relevant Chair under a delegation conferred by the Scheme following consultation at a proceeding of the relevant Advisory Panel. This will be clearly marked on the agenda.  Further information is below.

In-person meetings: The location of the Covid-secure venue for a LLDC Board or Committee meeting to be held physically in-person will be indicated on the agenda.  Such meetings will be open to the public (in line with any Covid guidance) except for when confidential, personal or financial information matters are being discussed. These items will be marked on the agenda. Members of the public can attend the public session of a Board or Committee meeting (in line with any Covid guidance) and obtain copies of the public papers. Agendas of business that will be discussed at a meeting and the reports on each topic for discussion (except any which contain confidential, personal or financial information) can generally be viewed on the website five days before the meeting. Minutes of the decisions taken at the meeting will also be available on the website once they have been agreed. Members of the public can also inspect background papers relating to a report.

Advisory Panel proceedings: As set out in the Scheme for Remote Decision-Making (Appendix 1), any Advisory Panel proceedings will be held by remote access (Microsoft Teams) and be open to the public except for when confidential, personal or financial information matters are being discussed (these items will be marked on the agenda). Members of the public can view or listen, via remote access, to the public section of each Board or Committee Advisory Panel proceedings and view copies of the public reports.  The link for the public section of the Advisory Panel will be shown on the agenda for the proceedings. Agendas of matters that will be discussed and the reports on each topic for discussion (except any which contain confidential, personal or financial information) can generally be viewed on the website five days before the proceedings. A note of the proceedings containing a statement of the Chair’s decisions on each of the items on the Advisory Panel agenda will be published on the website as soon as is practicable.
