Oxford City Council meetings go to go live online

Oxford City Council is to stream its public meetings live on the internet from this week.

The full council is due to meet on Monday and residents will be able to watch proceedings online for the first time.

The authority has filmed meetings since April 2010 and made them available to view after the event.

Monday's meeting is due to begin at 1700 GMT. Residents can also attend in person.

Council leader Bob Price said: "Members of the public have always been welcome to attend council meetings but the development of new digital media allows us to open up that access to people who are unable to get into the centre of the city, or who prefer to watch from home."
