Kendal Town Council’s COVID-19 Response

Updated 24th June 2020

Along with many organisations, Kendal Town Council’s Management Committee have reviewed our working arrangements in light of the recent Government advice regarding COVID-19. We have made changes to protect our workforce and Councillors.

Our main office in the Town Hall foyer is closed to general walk-ins but we remain contactable by email at or telephone by leaving a message on 01539 793490.  We will be responding to voicemails and emails during our opening hours of 9.30am-12.30pm Monday to Friday.

All Committee and Council meetings are being conducted using Zoom teleconferencing. We will make use of all available IT solutions to maintain contact and continue the decision making process.

A number of this year’s events have been cancelled. At present it is envisaged that the current Mayor Cllr Alvin Finch and Deputy Mayor Cllr Doug Rathbone will continue past the end of their current term.

Chair of Management Committee, Councillor Stephen Coleman, said “Our top priority is the health of our members, officers and the general public.  Given the current situation nationally, we have reluctantly taken these measures.  We are holding virtual meetings to allow Committee meetings to continue without the need to meet face to face. These online meetings are still open to members of the public.  We continue to monitor the national situation and will resume normal meetings as soon as it is viewed safe to do so.”
