Axminster gives go-ahead for public recording of town council meetings

13 Aug

This good news has been left today as a comment, on the SIN blog (See  Now Exmouth Town Council …in no hurry to record meetings, 7 August)

In a watershed moment, the current mayor of Axminster led a debate last night which culminated in councillors agreeing to allow members of the public to freely record the meetings of the town council without let or hindrance…. one hopes that this sends a message up the chain that councils have nothing to fear from such a policy and that public meetings are just that….PUBLIC…. Come on EDDC, join the club and allow free and open recordings to take place…. vive la revolution!

    This is the way to enhance a council’s reputation and in stark contrast to others who would appear not to wish to be accountable. Well done Axminster.
