Meetings and committees

Meetings and committees

All the business of these meetings is conducted in public session, with the exception of very occasional confidential matters. We publish meeting agendas here at least five days before the meeting. Members of the public can speak at most meetings.

The Authority continues to follow Government advice to reduce the risks associated with COVID.  This includes advising that face coverings are worn during public meetings or limiting attendance by the public.  Registered speakers are able to participate in person by following our procedure.  However, registered speakers may be asked to only access the room for the duration of the relevant item on the agenda.

To minimise the risk of transmission of COVID, please be aware that space within the Authority's Meeting Room at Parke is very limited and if you attend in person you may not be able to access the Meeting Room.  Therefore, members of the public that wish to follow proceedings are strongly advised to listen to the live audio of meetings (see below).

Please do not attend if you are showing any symptoms of COVID.

Live Audio of Meetings

During the Covid-19 pandemic our meetings were livestreamed online to enable members of the public to view and participate in the meetings. We are now required to hold face-to-face public meetings and these will take place at Parke, Bovey Tracey.

Please note that it is not currently possible to participate remotely. If you wish to participate at meetings of the Authority or it’s Development Management Committee, please register to speak by following our procedure.

Currently, we are not able to broadcast a live video of proceedings. However, should you wish to follow a meeting remotely we are providing an audio only option where you would be able to listen to proceedings and decisions as they are made. If you wish to follow the audio of any of the meetings in progress please follow the link below at the time of the meeting.
