At an extraordinary meeting of Ledbury Town Council on 19 March 2020 Ledbury Town Council considered how best to proceed due to the emergence of Covid 19.
At that meeting they took the unprecedented decision to cease all Council and Committee Meetings until the end of May 2020 at which time they will review the situation. These meetings will include the following:
Viaduct Parish Meeting – Monday, 23 March
Youth Parish Meeting – Wednesday, 25 March
Finance, Policy & General Purposes Committee – 26 March
Climate Emergency Working Party – 1 April
Full Council – 2 April
Economic Development & Planning Committee – 9 April
NDP Working Party – 20 April
Annual Town Meeting – 30 April
Annual Council Meeting – 14 May
It was also agreed, with great sadness, that the VE Day Celebrations planned for Friday, 8 May, should also be cancelled. Also, the Co-option of new councillors and the Annual Distinguished Citizen Awards will also be postponed, until such time the Council is in a position to resume public meetings safely.

We are currently waiting to hear from the Planning Inspectorate as to whether the Viaduct Housing Development Appeal will be postponed and as soon as we hear we will provide an update.
