National Association of Local Councils has clarified its understanding of the rule of six, from 17th May until such time as national restrictions are amended or lifted:

  1. Parish Councillors plus the Clerk are outside the rule of six for indoor meetings because they form the body corporate which is exempt as a permitted organised gathering.
  2. Members of the public constitute the rule of six for indoor meetings.

Members of the public have a right to attend face-to-face meetings, should more than six members of the public wish to attend the meeting in person, the meeting may need to take place outdoors or adjourn but not proceed inside.  In inclement weather, meeting will attend to urgent or time related business only and return to the remaining agenda items after June 21st
