PLA 2021 Annual General Meeting


The PLA Annual General Meeting will take place on 1 November 2021 at 6pm at One London Wall, Barbican, London EC2Y 5EB

The Committee continues to monitor developments in respect of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the related public health guidance and legislation issued by the UK Government. As at the date of this notice, there is no limit to the number of people that can gather both publicly and private although caution is recommended particularly for gatherings indoors. In light of this, we have taken the decision to hold the General Meeting at the offices of Osborne Clarke at One London Wall, Barbican, London EC2Y 5EB   The venue, taking account of Covid precautions, can cater for 20 attendees.  Based on attendances at previous General Meetings, this is more than adequate.  However, in this instance due to Covid precautions, if more than 20 attend the General Meeting on 1 November 2021, we will have to postpone it to a later date to accommodate a larger attendance.

Members are therefore strongly encouraged to vote in absentia by proxy at the General Meeting. In order to do so, members should appoint the Chair of the meeting as their proxy and otherwise complete their proxy voting instructions. To download a proxy form, please see the Notes to the Notice below.

Member engagement and participation remains important. Therefore, we have once again taken the decision that members may submit questions relating to the business of the General Meeting in advance of the meeting. Questions may be submitted via email using We will publish the answers to questions on our website as soon as practicable after the General Meeting.
