you can now
spend time outdoors sitting and enjoying the fresh air,
picnicking, or sunbathing you can only meet one other person from a
different household and social distancing guidelines must be
observed ensuring you are 2 metres away from anyone outside
your household at all times. You can use the outdoor sports courts and tennis courts – see the individual signs on these facilities.
You can not use the outdoor green gym or the playgrounds / equipment or gather in a group of more than two (excluding members of your own household)
You should not use the Recreation Ground if you are showing coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household are self-isolating.
In the light of the most recent advice from the National Association of
Local Councils (NALC)
ALL MEETINGS OF THE PARISH COUNCIL HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE AND DELEGATED POWERS ARE IN PLACE FOR PAYMENTS AND PLANNING - SEE HERE
You can view the monthly planning
list under Council Meetings, Minutes, Agendas, and Planning Addendums. If you
have any comments which you would like the Council to take into
consideration when responding please email these to email@example.com
and these will be passed onto the Lead/Deputy Lead Member for Planning. The timescale is given on the list.
The next scheduled meeting of the Council would have been on the 11th May 2020 and would have been the Annual Statutory Meeting followed by a normal Council Meeting.
Regulation 4 of the 2020 Covid-19 Regulations provides that where an appointment would otherwise be made, or is required to be made, at an Annual meeting of a local authority, the appointment continues until the next Annual meeting of the authority (i.e. May 2021) or until such time as that authority may determine (Regulation 4 (2).
This applies to the election of the Chairman, the first business at the Annual council meeting and, in Datchets’ case, the election of a Vice-Chairman. Therefore the current Chairman and Vice-Chairman will remain in place until the Annual meeting is held next year, unless the Council decide to elect a replacement earlier.
Please see HERE for a draft list of the meetings that are scheduled for 2020/21 this is still to be formally approved by the Council at the first meeting back.

Update regarding the Annual Governance and Accountability Return
Due to the impact of COVID 19 the Statutory Audit deadlines are being extended and amended regulations will be effective from 30th April 2020.
These regulations extend the audit deadlines and remove the requirement for the public inspection period to include the first 10 working days of July. Instead, the public inspection period must begin on or before 1 September 2020, meaning that the Council has until 31 August 2020, at the latest, to approve and publish the AGAR.
The date by which the completion of the final accounts and AGAR, together with any certificate or opinion issued by the local auditor, must be published has changed from 30 September 2020 to 30 November 2020.
