Live Streaming gives the community greater access to Council decisions and debate, and eliminates geographic and time barriers which may prevent the public from attending meetings in person.
Council live streams all public Council Meetings through the official Moira Shire Council Facebook page, which can also be viewed below under Access our Meetings.
Live streaming and publishing is conducted in accordance with Council's Live Streaming & Publishing Recordings of Council Meetings Policy.
Our public meetings are live streamed via the Moira Shire Council Facebook page on their scheduled time and date.
All recordings shown on Facebook will be available via the Council website under their corresponding meeting date within five business days of the meeting. To access agendas, minutes and recordings visit, Past Meetings.
Council's Live Streaming & Publishing Recordings of Council Meetings Policy informs members of the public and Councillors on the processes, the potential benefits and any mitigation action to manage the potential risks of live streaming.
The policy applies to all public Council Meetings including unscheduled and joint meetings conducted by Council. The policy does not extend to any meetings closed to the public in accordance with Section 66(2) of the Local Government Act 2020.

There may be situations where, due to technical difficulties a live stream may not be available. Whilst every effort will be made to ensure the live streaming and website are up and running smoothly, the Moira Shire Council takes no responsibility for and cannot be held liable for, the live streaming or Council website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond its control.
Technical issues may include, but are not limited to the availability of the internet connection, device failure or malfunction, unavailability of social media platforms or power outages.
The audio-visual recording equipment will be configured in a way which avoids coverage of the public gallery area and Council will endeavour to ensure images in this area are not streamed and recorded. However, Council expressly provides no assurances to this effect and in the event a person’s image is webcast, by remaining in the public gallery area it is implied that consent has been given to the Council to broadcast a person’s image.
Any members of the public who address Council will be heard on the livestream, and the audio of them speaking will be recorded. Any members of the public who submit a question for a Council Meeting should be aware that their name and question will be read out during the live streaming.
