York Council criticised for annual meeting arrangements

The City’s Honorary Aldermen were told yesterday that they would be unable to attend the York Councils annual meeting which takes place today.

Attendance numbers are being restricted with only one place unavailable for the media plus a nominal “member of the public”.

The Councils ceremonial annual meeting would normally attract an attendance of around 200 people.

The Council claims that the decision to limit attendance is in line with COVID regulations.

NB. A sports event held at the Community Stadium last weekend attracted around 1000 spectators.
