    Temporary security measures introduced for public meetings

    Measures to improve security during council meetings will come into effect week beginning 25 September.. Importantly, if you want to attend a public meeting you will need to register your details in advance. The changes will ensure that meetings can go ahead without interruption and provide evidence if it is needed.

    Find out more about the temporary security measures.


    Please note, access to the Municipal Offices for wheelchair users or anyone using a mobility aid is via the Royal Well entrance at the rear of the building, with a lift to take you to the ground floor where the committee rooms are situated, and a further lift to help you into the Council Chamber, if required. Hearing enhancers are available in our main committee rooms for the hard of hearing. Please email Democratic Services or call 01242 264246 in advance if you are likely to require any additional assistance when attending a meeting.
