All East Sussex County Council meetings will be face to face as the Government has stopped councils running any more online remote meetings. The recent East Sussex County Council Annual Council Meeting lasted only 18 minutes and no substantive business was discussed.
Cllr Amanda Morris said,
"It's right that some meetings happen in person, but the government's approach is ridiculous. all these county councillors travelling from all over East Sussex for an 18 minute meeting, which could easily have happened online. The time, money and carbon emissions from councillors travelling from all over the county - what a waste!"
