Rye Town Council can be contacted via email or telephone 01797 223902, Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm (voicemail available).

Next Council Meeting: Tuesday 4th May 2021 at 6.30pm – Full Council Meeting followed by Planning and Townscape Committee Meeting.

The meeting will be held via the Zoom video conferencing platform. Members of the public wishing to attend should request the joining details by emailing no later than noon on the day of the meeting and provide their name and Zoom user name (if different – and if known).

Public guidance for Council Zoom meetings:

  • Please ensure that your mute button (bottom left-hand corner of your Zoom window – or top right of your personal Zoom display window) is set to ‘mute.
  •  ‘Unmute’ it only when the chairman of the meetings has invited you to speak.
  • If you wish to speak please raise – or wave – a hand.
  • If you suspect the chairman has not noticed you, click on the ‘Participants’ button at the bottom of the Zoom window. Then look at the bottom of the Participants window and click on ‘Raise hand’. This will result in a small blue, ‘hand’ shape appearing next to your name in the Participants window. (Don’t forget to click ‘lower hand’ after you have spoken.)
  • Most meeting agendas provide a slot for public questions/contributions. If you wish to speak please do so at this point. Being able to speak at other times is at the discretion of the meeting and so further opportunities to speak cannot be guaranteed.
  • The meeting will be administered by the Clerk and/or Deputy Clerk. During the meeting they may need to send you a message or ask you to do something – or not do something!
  • Any member of the public who has clearly joined the meeting solely to disrupt it will be removed immediately – others can expect ‘fair warning’ from the chairman.
