DCN responds to MHCLG call for evidence on the continuation of remote meetings
In our submission we argue it should be for local authorities to decide what works best for their decision-making processes, for their officers & members and most importantly for their residents.
If councils can meet openness & transparency and access to information requirements, they should be allowed to proceed in the most suitable way. Furthermore it would give councils the opportunity to develop hybrid sessions, mixing remote and in person accessibility to best support local democracy.
