webcasting council meetings

As regular readers will know I have been looking at the webcasting experiments that other local authorities have undertaken.  At present Sefton has a little used video link between Bootle and Southport Town halls and we have just cut upgrading it from the capital programme. Personally I am very keen that we should be opening up our meetings to the public. I just don't think that allowing the public to attend in person  is good enough- especially when most of the decision making meetings are held during the working day and the borough is so spread out. Wecasting may be part of the solution particularly if the costs can be kept down. Anyway I have one more Council to add to me list: Cornwall. Take a look. It does the job even if the camera work only get 2/10

Post a Comment

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
