An outbreak of common sense – Special Full Council on 11th February 2014 to be webcast


Following the recent Full Council meeting at which some 250 members of the public were denied access to the council chamber the next meeting of Full Council on 11th February 2014 (Special Full Council re the Local Plan) will be webcast live on the council’s web site. It seems that common sense has prevailed!!

Let’s hope that:

a) This now happens on a regular basis.

b) The recordings are made available on the web site after the meeting so that those members of the public unable to view on the evening will be able to do so at their convenience. Now that really would be a positive step towards public service!

Whilst this is undoubtedly a step forward in terms of the council engaging with the public it is also important that the public does not now become complacent.

For important meetings, with important agendas, a strong show of public feeling is still the ONLY thing that seems to get the attention of some of our councillors.
