Meetings shall be open to the public unless their presence is prejudicial to the public interest by reason of the confidential nature of the business to be transacted or for other special reasons. The public’s exclusion from part or all of a meeting shall be by a resolution which will give reasons for the public’s exclusion.
The Council now also has a Public Filming, Recording and Audio Reporting Policy at meetings.
