The legislation permitting councils to meet remotely came to an end on 6 May 2021.  All council meetings held on, or after the 7 May, must therefore return to a face-to-face format in the main hall of Chudleigh Knighton Village Hall.


Full Parish Council Meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of the month, Planning on the fourth Tuesday and the full schedule of meetings can be found on the Programme of Meetings.

The maximum number of people allowed in the main hall is 25, as stated in Chudleigh Knighton Village Hall’s special conditions of hire during Covid-19. Members of the public must let the Clerk know in advance of the meeting if they are planning to attend.  The Clerk will let them know the arrangements for social distancing, wearing of masks, hand sanitising and other measures.  If members of public arrive after we have reached capacity, they will be asked to leave.
