Council will be going live for meeting
12:00pm Monday 25th February 2013 in Headlines
RESIDENTS in East Dorset can watch a council meeting on the internet tonight.
The meeting, to be held on Monday at 6.30pm, will include the setting of the council tax and the approval to submit the Christchurch and East Dorset Core Strategy document to the Planning Inspectorate for Examination in Public.
The core strategy document sets out the way development should be handled in the area over the coming years, and the council wants to ensure everyone has the opportunity to listen to the debate.
The meeting will be held in the council chamber, but space is limited and admittance will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
For this reason the council has decided to broadcast the meetings live over the internet for the first time.
Anyone wishing to address the meeting is advised to contact the democratic services team on 01202 886201, extension 2403, as soon as possible.
Under the constitution and in order to ensure that the meetings are manageable, there are time limits, deadlines and a restriction on representations.
The webcast will be live from 15 minutes before each meeting at dorsetforyou.com/407569.
