Meetings were cancelled in March as a result of the coronavirus restrictions. A major upgrade has now been completed to online meeting software which will allow members of the public to watch planning meetings, Cabinet and Full Council meetings as they happen.

The first meeting to be conducted this way will be Full Council on Tuesday 19 May.


How to view meetings

Members of the public can now view live or recorded council meetings. Viewers will wait in a virtual 'meeting room' for a few moments before being admitted.

As well as watching them live, members of the public can also listen back to audio recordings of the meetings which can be accessed via the council's website. These are available shortly after the meeting has finished.

Members of the public who would like to speak at a planning committee meeting need to register online by 5pm the day before the meeting is due to take place. Participants will be asked if they would like to provide a statement to be read out or whether they would prefer to address the committee virtually.

Anyone wishing to speak at any other public meeting is asked to contact with their name, address and contact telephone number at least two working days before the meeting.

You can access dates, papers and links to audio recordings for Chichester District Council meetings.
