Even greater transparency through video recordings of Council meetings

Residents of Canterbury-Bankstown and the wider community will soon be able to see the City’s decision-making process in action, from the comfort of their homes.

Councillors have agreed for the video recording of the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s monthly meetings starting next year, once the necessary technology has been installed. These recordings will be placed on Council’s website the following day, where they will remain for a month.

Mayor Khal Asfour said it was another way Council is providing even greater transparency.

"We have already dramatically increased the level of community consultation, particularly when it comes to making important decisions on plans and strategies which impact thousands of residents," he said.

"As Councillors, we take our role very seriously and there is often robust debate, which more residents will now have the opportunity to witness. They will also see how their feedback helps guide the Councillors and shapes their decisions.

"The video technology will enable them to be more involved and be better informed about matters right across the City, and understand all the factors which need to be considered."

The City of Canterbury Bankstown’s meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month and start at 6pm, at Bankstown Council Chambers (corner of Chapel Road and The Mall, Bankstown).

"With everyone leading such busy lives, it can become increasingly difficult to get to the meetings, so the video recording of the proceedings will help people to keep up to speed with what’s happening in the City," Mayor Asfour said.

"We also have a monthly CBCity News video, which is shared on Council’s Facebook page and website, where the important items considered by Council are summarised in a two-minute snapshot. It can be viewed at cb.city/news."
