Contested minutes of Council meetings?

Leave a comment

Bob Neill, Department of Communities and Local Government, Feb 23 2011 has the solution:
“As part of the Government’s transparency drive I want to highlight the importance of your council giving citizens the opportunity to access and experience their local democracy using modern communication methods. It is essential to a healthy democracy that citizens everywhere are able to feel that their council welcomes them to observe local decision-making and through modern media tools keep others informed as to what their council is doing. The mainstream media also needs to be free to provide stronger local accountability by being able to film and record in meetings without obstruction.” Link below:
