This Procedure will apply to the decision-making which was to have been dealt with via the meeting of the Combined Authority Board arranged for Wednesday 25 March 2020. Due to Government guidance on social distancing and the Covid-19 virus it will not be possible to hold a physical meeting of the Combined Authority Board as intended and until there is a change in the law to allow local government formal meetings to take place on-line without a physical meeting an alternative decisionmaking process is required.
