This was the first of a hybrid face to face Council meeting since lockdown in March 2020. Meetings since then had been held virtually via Zoom, but recent government instruction was that physical meetings had to resume. Due to the limited space in the Council Chamber other venues were sought to enable safe social distancing, and the Baptist Church was able to offer greater space for this. This venue also allowed limited spaces for public attendance that would have otherwise not be possible, and had the equipment to live stream. Participants and members of the public could also access the meeting via Zoom and it was also live streamed to Seaford Town Council’s YouTube Channel helping to reach a wider audience.
