15 minutes!

and the release of another photo opportunity for you know who? was therefore delayed too.

Yes not a very effective use of Councillors or Officers time but the direct result of Tory Government demand that all Council meetings now have to be in person. Bonkers!

All council meetings should be in person - it means that councillors need to attend - let's face it most of them are absent the rest of the time!

Councillors should be expected to attend meeting where required. But doing work and turning up to meetings are not the same. Being at a meeting in person does not mean any more work gets done for residents.
