Listen live to the debate

Author: Nick Griffin


Residents can now listen live to many of the borough’s committee meetings thanks to a new audio webcast service.

The new service allows residents to stream meetings live via the council’s website and listen in as the debate takes place during a selection of meetings.

The technology also allows residents to listen to recordings of what was said at the committee and even select which agenda item they would like to hear.

A schedule of which meetings will be available to stream is published on the council’s website.

The Leader of Barnet Council, Councillor Richard Cornelius, said: “I am very pleased that we are now able to offer our residents another way of keeping up to date with the decision making process in Barnet.

“It provides a really convenient way for residents to listen live, or at a time which best suits them, and helps ensure our meetings are as open and accessible as possible.”

More information on upcoming meetings being broadcast live is available online.
