Webcast of Council meetings

Watch democracy in action with our live webcast of Council and Committee meetings held in the Council Chambers.

Ordinary Council Meetings and Committee Meetings (Public Voice Committee, Briefing Committee and Development Applications Committee) will be broadcast. Ordinary Council meetings take place on a Tuesday from 5.30pm on weeks 2 and 4 until June 2017 and monthly on week 4 from July 2017.

Confidential sessions of Council meetings will not be broadcast. If the webcast stream goes black during a meeting, this will likely indicate the Council has entered into a confidential session.

Council will monitor webcasts and make improvements as required to enhance the service.
Council meetings will be available online for a period of four months and then will be removed.

Newcastle City Council accepts no liability for any defamatory remarks that are made during the course of a meeting. The quality of the webcast will depend on your PC's memory and internet connection bandwidth.
