COUNCIL MEETINGS TO BE OPEN TO ALL SOCIAL MEDIA & CITIZENS

New rules will come into force soon, put in place by the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, that open up council meetings to allow citizens to report, blog, tweet and film all public meetings in England revolutionising the way the press and public can follow the good work of councillors.

The order also includes a new legal right for broadcasters to film council meetings.

There have number a number of high profile cases in the past where citizens have been prevented from filming or tweeting from council meetings.
