Covid-19: How to access council meetings without attending

Members of the public interested in a particular meeting do not have to attend in person. Many of the council’s committees and other meetings, including cabinet meetings, are audio webcast so that you can listen to the proceedings from another location.

To do this, simply select the meeting on the calendar on the council’s website and this will take you to the agenda webpage. When the webcast starts, a bar will appear above the list of agenda items. Click on ‘start’ to listen to the proceedings.

If you wish to make a comment or ask a question at the meeting you can email your comment or question to the contact or mailbox referred to on the agenda webpage by clicking on the email address link.

You can email your comments or questions up to the day before the meeting. Your comment or question will be read out at the meeting. The chairman or relevant cabinet member will then either respond at the meeting or undertake to respond to you in writing.
