Planning committee to be webcast

Residents will soon be able to watch live webcasts of Midlothian Council’s planning committee.

Council decision

At the full council meeting on Tuesday, councillors agreed to stop webcasting the cabinet meetings and instead show the planning committee meetings.

Reflecting local views

The move comes after feedback from the Midlothian Federation of Community Councils as well as Eskbank and Newbattle Community Council suggested webcasting planning committee meetings would be of more interest and value to local people than watching cabinet meetings.

Contract expires in 2021 

A further evaluation report will be brought before the full council prior to the current webcasting contract expiring in 2021.
