Webcasting - i.e. transmitting over the internet - is a relatively inexpensive way of broadening access to local government. People who can't (or won't) attend public meetings can watch the relevant bits, whenever and wherever is convenient for them. I put forward a motion to council that Torfaen webcast its meetings back in autumn 2012, with the webcasting actually beginning in the following year.

It had a bit of media coverage:
☆ 10/07/2013 - Argus.
☆ 10/11/2013 - South Wales Argus.
You can now watch most Torfaen council meetings HERE.
