It is planned to return to face to face meetings in The Salford Suite in the Old Town Hall Building at the Civic Centre from Wednesday 1st September 2021.
The Salford Suite is the only available room that is large enough to hold meetings and still comply with social distancing and Covid safe guidelines, as advised by Public Health.
It should be possible to hold most of the decision making meetings back in the Salford Suite but it will not be possible to hold the meetings of the Council, the Health and Wellbeing Board, Licensing and Safety Regulatory Panel (taxis) and Planning and Transportation Regulatory Panel, due to the number of people required to attend and so they will remain at 100 Embankment for the foreseeable future. There may also be times, when the date and times of meetings clash, that a meeting may to be need to move to 100 Embankment.
Everyone involved has worked hard to ensure that the transfer of face to face meetings to the Salford Suite will be held in a COVID-19 secure environment. The safety of everyone attending the meetings is our upmost priority, whilst also supporting transparency, accountability and effective decision making.
To be able to do this we ask that all attendees read the Return to face to face meetings in The Salford Suite at the Civic Centre from 1st September 2021 and take all the actions required to meet the Government guidelines and try to keep everyone as safe as possible. The update also contains travel and parking information.
Here is the latest update on theGovernment guidance on coronavirus and businesses.
