Live Streaming of Meetings

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Council now live streams all Council Meetings through the official Moira Shire Council Facebook page, with a link also being made available on the website after the meeting.

Live Streaming allows the public to watch and listen to the meeting in real time without needing to attend the meeting in person, giving greater access to Council decision making and debate, and encouraging openness and transparency.

There may be situations where, due to technical difficulties a live stream may not be available. Council takes no responsibility for and cannot be held liable for the live streaming 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.

When the Council Meetings are open to members of the public, every care will be taken to maintain privacy. It is not intended that members of the public will be visible in a live stream of a meeting. Cameras are positioned so that members of the public are not visible. 

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.

Access to live streams and recordings of meetings is provided for personal and non-commercial use. Video, images and audio must not be altered, reproduced or republished without the permission of the Chief Executive Officer.
