the start of tonight's Derwent Valley Council meeting.
Seven of the elected councillors are present for the meeting, along with six staff, a guest speaker, and about 14 people in the public gallery.
Earlier today it was decided that the meeting would be relocated from the courthouse to the more spacious Memorial Hall following government recommendations on "social distancing" to prevent the spread of infection.
