Audio Recording of Meetings

All Council meetings will be audio recorded and made available for public access, with the exception of matters identified as confidential items in the agenda. This includes public participation sections of the meetings.

These recordings are taken to facilitate the preparation and accuracy of the minutes of open Council meetings, broader access to open Council meetings and the accuracy of submitter details (where relevant).

By participating in open Council meetings, individuals consent to the use and disclosure of the information that they share at the meeting (including any personal/sensitive information) for the purposes of Council carrying out its functions. Individuals also consent to the disclosure of that information to any person(s) who access those recordings.
