January 19 Full Council cancelled

The Full Council Meeting scheduled for Wednesday 19 January 2022 has been cancelled following consultation will all political group leaders.

Jacqui Gedman, Chief Executive of Kirklees Council, said: “Rates of Covid-19 infection are currently very high in Kirklees and across the country.

“We therefore need to take decisions to mitigate risks, including for elected members. In consultation with all political group leaders, it has therefore been agreed that the Full Council Meeting scheduled for Wednesday 19 January 2022 will be cancelled.

“Non-urgent business on the agenda for this meeting can instead be heard at the Budget Council Meeting on 16 February with no disruptions to service or governance. In the meantime, members of the public and councillors will also still be able to ask questions to the Leader and Cabinet as our other public meetings – such as Cabinet Committee – which will continue to go ahead as we can manage risks much easier for them because they involve fewer attendees.”
