Webcasts of council meetings

We webcast a range of meetings to improve openness, understanding and accountability of local decision making. These meetings are webcast live and are available on-demand within 48 hours of the meeting.

The webcast portal provides access to live webcasts and on-demand viewing of all webcasts from the last 12 months. Webcasts from 1 September 2014 will be available to view for two years.  Go to the portal to check out what live webcasts are coming up in the next month.

Photography, filming and social media use in meetings

Under the Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014, people attending open meetings can:

  • film
  • audio record
  • take photographs
  • use social media.

Oral commentary is not allowed during meetings as it would be disruptive. If you're attending a meeting, you need to be aware that you may be filmed by others attending.  This is not within our control.

Read more about open and accountable local government on the GOV.UK website (a guide for the press and public on attending and reporting meetings of local government).
