Please note that the Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014 which came into force on the 6th August 2014 permits the media and public to record meetings of the council.
Should you wish to record a meeting it would be helpful if you could notify the Clerk or the Chairman so that they can ensure you have the necessary facilities and so that other members of the public can be notified that the meeting is being recorded.
Please note that the Chairman has the right to ask that recording be stopped if the Chairman reasonably believes that the meeting is being disrupted because of the recording, if the recording is preventing the public participating or is inhibiting community involvement or if the meeting moves into confidential session.
If you object to being recorded please notify the Chairman or Clerk. We will endeavour to ensure that your objections are respected. However we are not able to guarantee this. This is a public meeting and there is a statutory right for anyone to record it.
Anyone at the meeting may use Twitter, Facebook or similar social media provided that the Chairman does not consider their actions are disrupting the proceedings of the meeting.
