Back in December 2012 Council was asked whether or not we wanted to have Webcasting of Full Council meetings. At the time there was a lot of complaints about the cost of broadcasting Council meetings over the internet.
Well last night was a resounding success. Over 500 people watched at least a part of the meeting – if we are not careful we will be in a ratings war with Eastenders!
If you click here you can see the entire (5 1/2 hours!) council meeting.

The viewing gallery appeared to be packed at the beginning of the meeting last night (c.50 people?), but that is dwarfed with the number of people who watched online. I hope the residents of Southend remember that it was the Conservative Administration who pushed for opening up democracy like never before.
