Advice about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is being updated daily by government.
Residents are encouraged to report or request City Council services to Newport City Council online if possible
Suspension of public meetings
In line with public health measures to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus and to enable the Community Council to focus on the delivery of critical services for the vulnerable all public meetings are suspended.
Urgent decisions will continue to be made in accordance with the Councils Standing Orders and urgent decision-making procedures.
The Community Council is also anticipating emergency powers legislation from both Westminster and the Welsh Government, which will suspend certain statutory duties and timescales during the emergency period. This would remove the need for an Annual General Meeting in May and will permit the continuance of existing appointments.
