The law was changed in August 2014 that made it legal to record and film council meetings. In order to facilitate this change and to allow recording in such a way that it does not disrupt the flow of meetings or those in attendance, and provides certain protections (e.g. filming of minors) a policy has been developed that is in line with standard policies across the country. Anyone wishing to film or record a council meeting is advised to read the full policy, which is available here, before recording or filming a meeting.
Covering everything from snow to major disasters, this plan identifies local risks and resources and coordinates with surrounding areas and organisations.
