Virtual committee meetings

A number of Breckland Council committee meetings are being held via videoconference and made accessible to members of the public through online video streams.

The live video feed will enable people to observe the meeting's debates and the decisions being made.

Streaming meetings is in-line with Government-granted powers to allow local authorities to hold meetings using video conferencing, rather than holding meetings in public which is the usual requirement.

How to observe the meetings

If you would like to observe a meeting, please visit www.youtube.com/user/BrecklandView/videos or search for 'Breckland Council' on www.youtube.com a few minutes before the meeting is due to start.

Look out for the new video or for an indication that the council 'is live'. If you're unavailable when the meeting is streamed live, the footage will be saved on the YouTube page for later viewing shortly after the meeting has concluded.

Please note, you may need to refresh your internet browser to pick up on the new video content. Some internet browsers may not allow you to watch the stream live, depending on your settings. You should therefore be prepared to switch to another internet browser at short notice, such as Chrome, Firefox, or Edge (others are available). You may also wish to consider watching the stream via a tablet/smartphone or using the YouTube app.

In the event of technical difficulties - for example, YouTube is unavailable - the council meeting will instead be streamed to the council's Facebook page (or search Facebook for 'BreckCouncil'). If you are unable to view the live stream without signing into a Facebook account, you can choose to create an account at www.facebook.com (please note Facebook is a third-party social media site and is not affiliated with the council).
