Chairman’s Update – June 2020

Good afternoon, Cookhill!

As the country continues to be affected by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic restrictions Cookhill Parish Council is working hard to continue with duties as much as is possible.

Parish Council Meetings

Parish Council meetings are being held via the Zoom app for the foreseeable future, to limit any possible spread of the virus. Meetings continue to take place on the second Tuesday of the month, with the Agenda published on the Wednesday prior to the meeting, here on the website, and also on the Parish noticeboards. If you would like to virtually attend one of the meetings please contact the clerk for the link.

Planning Applications 

Planning applications will still be reviewed, and site visits made, where the correct social distancing regulations can be safely maintained.

Website Accessibility Regulations

Many people rely on the internet as a source of information on public services. Local councils already consider those with disabilities when organising events, delivering services and public meetings. Similarly, thought must be given to how accessible information is on council websites. Disabilities can have a significant impact on how a person can access information online, so local councils must make their websites as accessible as possible. Even making small adjustments to a website can have a considerable effect.

The Parish Council have assessed their website for accessibility and installed software to enable everyone to successfully navigate the site. You can read our Accessibility Statement in full here.

Contact the clerk

Remember that if you have something you would like brought to the attention of the Parish Council you can always contact the clerk on 07584 687283 or via email


Councillor Bob Pinfield – Chairman to the Parish Council.
