new reporting for councillors

report from the roundtable - 26 oct

This council meeting included details of meeting considered 'assemblies' of councillors, the new requirement is part of the changes to the Local Government Act 1989. Any meeting defined as an Assembly of Councillors now must be reported to the next practical ordinary council meeting and recorded in the minutes of that meeting.

I welcome open and transparent government but note with interest that the same disclosure obligations don't apply to the state MPs who have imposed these new regulations on councillors.
