COVID-19 UPDATE - April 2021

The Parish Office will re-open to members of the public from Tuesday, 4th May 2021. The Stanton Hall and Conference Room will remain closed for bookings until further notice.

Procedures for face-to-face meetings - May 2021

The legislation that permitted virtual meetings ended on 7th May 2021 so we are now required to hold all in-person meetings for Full Council and all Standing Committees. Members of the public are permitted to attend these meeting subject to the following points.

  • The COVID-19 socially distanced capacity for the venue is assessed for each meeting, taking into account the number of Councillors and staff members who will attend the meeting. Access is given on a "first-come-first-served" basis and we cannot admit more than the stated number to the meeting.
  • Members of the public who wish to attend the meeting must form a socially-distanced queue at the main entrance to the Stanton Hall (by the Library) until they are given access to the building by a Councillor or member of staff immediately prior to the start of the meeting.
  • Members of the public must wear face masks at all times, unless exempt from doing so under current government legislation, and use the hand-sanitizer provided at the entrance. They will be asked to provide their name and contact details on entry.
  • Members of the public must proceed as directed to their seat at the meeting and remain in it until the end of the meeting.
  • A Councillor or member of staff will direct members of the public to leave, one-by-one, in a socially-distanced way at the end of the meeting.
  • MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO FEEL UNWELL MUST NOT ENTER THE BUILDING. You must return home and follow government guidance.
  • If members of the public do not feel comfortable attending a face-to-face meeting they may submit any questions or comments in advance by 12.00 noon on the day of the meeting to the key member of staff for that meeting.

We have set up a designated page on our website - COVID-19 (Corona Virus) support - where we will posting information for residents. Cheltenham Borough Council has set up a web-page which provides advice and updates on the corona virus. There are also links to other sources of advice from the government and the NHS. https://www.cheltenham.gov.uk/coronavirus
