The Council supports the principles of openness and transparency; it allows filming, recording and taking photographs at its meetings that are open to the public. It also allows the use of social networking websites (such as Twitter and Facebook) and blogging to communicate with people about what is happening, as it happens. Guidance for the press and public on attending and reporting meetings can be found using the Library link to the right of this page
