What is a webcast?
The council has installed cameras in the council chamber to broadcast planning, cabinet, council and scrutiny meetings on a regular basis. Live and recorded meetings will be available on this site. We are particularly keen to receive people-s views on the quality and usefulness of the webcasts.
Webcasting is the broadcast of video and audio over the internet - put simply it is the same as watching TV but through an internet connection. By webcasting meetings, the council aims to provide local residents who cannot attend meetings - through prior commitments, transport issues, disability, work patterns or child-care issues - with an opportunity to play a part in the local democratic process, and to get involved in the decisions affecting their lives.
How do I view a webcast?
You will need access to the internet (either broadband or via a dial-up modem), and you will need to have Windows Media player installed on the machine you are using (this can be downloaded for free from )
Should you miss a meeting, or would like to view a section of the meeting again, then you can view the archive of the webcast. The archives allow you to view the meeting at you leisure and, through the use of the index points, allow you to jump to a specific agenda point or speaker.
If you would like further information on webcasting contact the communications team.
