Unfortunately Bass Coast Shire Council continues to oppose the introduction of live streaming.

Live streaming would be a positive step towards greater transparency and community engagement in civic processes. It is recognised by the Victorian Ombudsman and at least 20 Victorian Councils to be an important service for the community.

But despite having voted in favour of a live streaming trial in June 2018, just weeks later five Councillors voted to rescind the decision, thereby scuttling plans to introduce live streaming.

The July 2018 meeting minutes show that Crs. Tessari, Kent, Ellis, Le Serve, and Fullarton did not support the introduction of the live streaming trial. 

The April 2019 minutes confirm that these five Councillors are not intending to reintroduce a motion in support of this important transparency measure at this time.

Despite the unwillingness of these Councillors to embrace live streaming, BCRRA will continue to advocate for its introduction.
