21st February 2022
Notice is hereby given that an Ordinary Meeting of Tibberton Parish Council will be held on Tuesday 1st March 2022 at
19:30 hours. The meeting will be a hybrid meeting whereby items which can be actioned under delegated powers, and
reports, will be presented for Members’ consideration during the virtual/online section of the meeting, via Microsoft
Teams. The physical meeting on the car park will be held 30 minutes after the virtual meeting finishes whereby Members will
register their votes re proposals on the agenda in person.
The business of the meeting under consideration is set out in the agenda below. All Members of Council have been summoned to attend the hybrid meeting.
Yours faithfully, J Hill Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer
Council has determined to conduct its business in this manner due to the need to protect members of the public and participants during the coronavirus crisis. The requirements for ensuring public safety are not something which either the National Association of Local Councils or Tibberton Parish Council consider practical or achievable – hence a hybrid
meeting, utilising delegated powers, to which all can safely contribute.
Democratic Period: Persons who wish to attend the meeting, or to address Council in the democratic period, should email the Clerk at the address above so that virtual access arrangements can be put in place. Please include your name and confirm whether you are just seeking to ‘observe’ the meeting OR whether you wish to address the Council during the Democratic Period. If you wish to address the Council, please state which agenda topic you wish to speak about. Please note that Council will only be seeking to discuss matters which fall within the remit of the agenda below and the Chairman will limit the number of people contributing about the same topic so all issues of interest can be raised.
A virtual meeting can descend into difficulties if more than one person attempts to speak at a time, so for that reason the Chairman will invite those named persons who have expressed a wish to address Council to speak in turn. Members of the public are not permitted to interrupt other participants during democratic period; neither are they permitted to speak during the meeting.
Those persons who are not Parish Councillors, or not invited by the Chairman to speak, are required to mute their
microphone and turn off their camera for the duration of the meeting. This will allow everyone to observe the meeting without
distraction and focus on the business being undertaken by Parish Councillors and those invited to contribute by the Chairman.
Otherwise, a very busy screen and background noise will impact on other attendees.
N.B. Please note that broadband and telephone charges incurred by you when accessing the meeting are subject to those
charges levied by your service provider.
Invitations to attend this meeting will be sent out prior to the meeting. Please notify the Clerk of your intention to attend
and/or wish to address the Council by 12 noon on Monday 28th February 2022 so that an invitation to attend can be issued.

benefit of other members of the public who might not wish to feature on the recording.
