Council Watch Live

Published: 10/02/2016

Are you interested in seeing democracy in action? From Tuesday 16 February 2016 you will be able to watch your elected members debating the issues that matter to you and your communities live from the Council Chamber as Flintshire County Council gets set to join other Council’s across the UK in broadcasting Council meetings via the internet. The introduction of this new technology will mean people can either watch meetings as they happen, or catch up later, at a time and place convenient to them. To access these meetings on-line go to Cllr. Aaron Shotton, Leader of the Council said, Webcasting of Council meetings has been introduced successfully in many Councils across the United Kingdom and I am delighted that Flintshire now too has the opportunity to realise the benefits of webcasting in terms of public engagement and transparency. This technology offers another channel for the public to engage more closely with the democratic process and for the business of local government to be made more transparent. It will also mean the views, actions and positions taken by local Councillors can be more closely scrutinised by the public.
