Authority and Committee Meetings
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the Government guidance on necessary social distancing measures, all face-to-face committee meetings have been cancelled until further notice. Following new Government legislation to allow for virtual meetings, a limited number of Kent and Medway Fire and Rescue Authority meetings will take place remotely.
Members of the public are welcome to attend Authority and Committee meetings. If you wish to attend any of our meetings, you may find the following notes helpful:
- You will only be able to observe the proceedings. You may also record or report on them. However, you will not be able to address the meeting or contribute to Members’ discussion.
- If you wish to record or report on the proceedings of a meeting, please follow these guidelines.
- Occasionally it is necessary for an item at a meeting to be considered in private because, for example, it contains personal information about an individual. Private items are always dealt with at the end of the meeting and they are always clearly identified in the agenda (as ‘Exempt’ items). Members of the public will be asked to leave the meeting before consideration of the private items starts.
- Most Authority and Committee meetings are held in the Committee Room at KFRS Headquarters, The Godlands, Straw Mill Hill, Tovil, Maidstone. The Committee Room has a small public seating area but, where meetings include items which are expected to attract a lot of public interest, we provide additional public seating in a separate room with an audio feed from the Committee Room.
