WARWICK District Council is cancelling forthcoming meetings in the face of the coronavirus.
Chief executive Chris Elliott said: “All executive, committee and sub-committees meetings of Warwick District Council have been suspended for the foreseeable future.
“It is intended that a meeting of Council will be held next Wednesday (25 March 2020) which will consider only essential business to enable the Council to operate in these exceptional circumstances.
“Any matters which need to be considered urgently, will be done so by the chief executive in consultation with the executive and group leaders under delegated authority.
“Papers for these will be made available online so that the public are aware of the decisions to be taken. There will (as with normal council business) be some matters which are confidential and cannot be made publically available.
“The council is scheduled to hold its annual council meeting on May 13 – this is now under review pending further guidance from central government.
“This situation will be reviewed regularly and updates will be issued in due course.”
The council is still awaiting guidance from central government on its planned Climate Action Fund referendum scheduled to take place on May 7.
