Risk assessments for democratic meetings
Whilst COVID restrictions are in place, we are taking special measures to make sure that democratic meetings are as safe as possible for the Councillors and Council staff who attend.
That includes doing risk assessments for the venues where we hold our meetings. We publish these risk assessments here.Democratic meetings venue risk assessment – Ryedale House Democratic meetings venue risk assessment – Milton Rooms
