Due to the Government’s Coronavirus restrictions, Parish Council public meetings will now, until further notice, be held using the Zoom video conferencing application.

Members of the public are welcome to join these meetings and can do so using the Zoom App on their PC, Mac, Tablet or Smartphone. In addition there is a dial in number for those unable to use the above devices – note however that you will not be able to see us or the planning applications if you dial in by phone.

Cancellation of Annual Parish Meeting

Dear Parishioners,

Due to the situation regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus we have decided to postpone our Annual Parish Meeting scheduled for 23rd April 2020. In addition we have decided to cancel our upcoming meeting scheduled for the 24th March 2020. This meeting was due to discuss some planning applications that were of interest to Parishioners (Coley Farm and Sun in the Wood) and we have requested extensions for comments from West Berkshire Council.

The Council is investigating the possibility of holding online meetings in the future that will still allow Parishioners to listen in and take part.

Office Closed to Visitors

Dear Parishioners,

The situation regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus is constantly evolving and Cold Ash Parish Council has been reviewing how it affects us and how we serve the Parish. As an employer we have a duty of care to our employees, which in our case is the Parish Clerk, Linda Randall. We have decided, with immediate effect, to close the Parish Office to visitors, until further notice. Linda will still work her normal hours and you can contact her by phone, email and by post. We hope you will understand that taking this decision helps us keep the office functioning without duly inconveniencing you, our Parishioners.

We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and are seeking advice from West Berkshire Council. I will update you in the future if our meetings or the Annual Parish Meeting are affected. In addition,
if things escalate to such an extent that some in our community are forced to stay at home, we will play our part in helping to keep them safe.

Best regards,
Richard Marsh
Chairman
Cold Ash Parish Council
