Home - Central Bedfordshire Council Webcasting
Central Bedfordshire Council has been webcasting some of its meetings since May 2015. Now you can see decisions being made and witness the debate and discussion in relation to matters of interest. Since it commenced in 2015 the Council has added more meetings to this list and now webcasts several meetings that are available live and via an archive. Meetings are stored in the archive indefinitely so can be viewed at any time. The right hand menu shows a list of future webcasts and those meetings that can be access from the Council's archive.
We currently webcast meetings of the following:-
- Full Council
- Audit Committee
- Children's Services Overview & Scrutiny Committee
- Corporate Resources Overview & Scrutiny Committee
- Development Management Committee
- Social Care, Health & Housing Overview & Scrutiny Committee
- Sustainable Communities Overview & Scrutiny Committee
- Traffic Management Meeting
All presentations that are shown during meetings will automatically be available in the webcast for that meeting. For all other agendas and reports you can view these at least 5 working days before the meeting or at any time after the meeting on the Council's website.
Webcasting during the coronavirus pandemic
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the government has published the Coronavirus Act, which makes it possible for the Council to hold meetings and make decisions virtually. During the pandemic, the Council will live stream a larger number of meetings than normal, including those above. All of these meetings will be listed on these pages.
Watching previous meetings
It can take up to 24 hours for a recording of a meeting to be added to this site in the webcasting library. You can view a meeting and, using index points, jump to a specific agenda point or speaker.
The most recent and upcoming meetings are shown on the right hand side of the screen. To watch a recent meeting, just click on the title.
Archived webcasts shall only be removed from the website if the Monitoring Officer considers that it is necessary because all or part of the content of the webcast is or is likely to be in breach of any statutory provision, for example Data Protection and Human Rights legislation or provisions relating to confidential or exempt information. Council Members will be notified by the Monitoring Officer if such action is taken.
