DENBIGHSHIRE Council could start broadcasting meetings over the internet by the end of March.

The council's Democratic Services Committee will discuss the plans at a meeting on Friday with the £40,000 cost of two years broadcasting set to come from a Welsh Government grant.

A report to the committee said: "The webcasting of meetings involves the live streaming of sound and images of meetings. This means that members of the public who are not able to attend meetings may either view them live online or at a later time or date."

Last July the council gave its consent, subject to successful testing, to broadcast meetings.

The report said: "Denbighshire has now entered into an agreement with a webcasting supplier, and the webcasting system equipment is being installed, and a draft timetable for operator training, awareness raising and test and live broadcasts before the end of March 2014 have been drawn up."

The council intends to webcast approximately 60 hours a year of meetings and meetings of Full Council and the Planning Committee are expected to be the ones being shown.
