Minutes - storage

0 votes
Like many councils we have had hard copies of minutes stored away for years and then into archive.
Can we now have minutes signed appropriately and scanned and stored on hard drive? Can they be electronically signed ?
Advice / comments please

You can certainly scan them if you wish, but I think there is a requirement to store the signed  hard copies in perpetuity.

Yes they can be electronically signed and scanned but the original signed copy should be filed and stored. Sometimes the District Council will store these records for you
