Shoalhaven City Council will now be webcasting all the Council Meetings held at the Council Chambers of the Nowra Administration Building, ensuring all the community can see how decisions are made.
Mayor Amanda Findley said, “Webcasting will provide transparency of Council decisions so people who cannot attend meetings can watch them from the comfort of their home and learn results of meetings instantly. This is an exciting step in connecting a broader range of our community.”
The meetings to be webcast will include Ordinary Meeting, Development Committee and Strategy and Assets Committee meetings. Dates of meetings are available on the Council website. Confidential Sessions of Meetings that are closed to the public in accordance with Section 10A of the Local Government Act 1993 will not be webcast.
People attending the meetings should be aware that the proceedings of each Council meeting (including presentations, deputations and debate) will be webcast and may be recorded and broadcast under the provisions of the Code of Meeting Practice. Attendance of the public to the meeting is taken as consent to the possibility that their image and/or voice may be recorded and broadcast to the public.
To view the next Development Meeting which will be held on Tuesday, 14 August, visit the Live Streaming Page on Council’s website at http://webcast.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au.
Meetings will be archived on the website 48 hours after the meeting is held.
