Virtual committee meetings
As a result of the current COVID-19 outbreak, Dorset Council will be hosting its committee meetings virtually following changes to legislation.
The council had suspended face-to-face meetings since the introduction of COVID-19 restrictions. New regulations now enable decision making processes to continue in accordance with the Government’s guidance on social distancing.
