About This Blog

The public should know all we can about the business of the decision makers that affect our lives, our wallets and our democracy. This is a record of my efforts to try and improve the levels of transparency and accountability within Sheffield City Council and others. To shine a light on how decisions are made and where the money goes. If I can also help others to find their own voice and influence along the way, then that is a bonus.

Sept 2013 - NOW THEN Magazine #66, "Webcasting. Transparent government in action?" by Nigel Slack

"Webcasting. Transparent government in action?" by Nigel Slack
In Sheffield's Now Then Magazine issue no.66 - September 2013

This article is aimed at generating a wider debate on the idea of Webcasting Council meetings. The webcasting of meetings would greatly improve the openness of Council decision making by allowing people who cannot make daytime weekday meetings to either, watch the events live on various technologies, or to view it after the event online. It looks at the pros and cons and considers why it is an important idea and how it can be done in these times of budgetary constraint for Councils.
