Live stream disclaimer

Read the disclaimer about live stream of Council meetings

  • All public Ordinary and Special Council Meetings of the City of Whittlesea are streamed live and recorded and made available to the public after the meeting on Council’s website.
  • These recordings are undertaken in accordance with Council's ‘Recording and Streaming of Council Meetings Policy’.
  • Live streaming allows you to watch and listen to the meeting in real time, giving you greater access to Council decision making and debate and encouraging openness and transparency.
  • Every care is taken to maintain privacy and attendees are advised they may be recorded.
  • 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 working, the City of Whittlesea takes no responsibility for, and cannot be held liable for, the unavailability of live streaming, in part or full, due to technical issues beyond its control.
  • Local Government Council decision making, unlike State and Federal Government, does not afford Councillors the benefit of parliamentary privilege and hence, all associated laws apply.
  • Therefore, it should be noted that no protection is afforded to Councillors or Council employees for comments made during meetings which are subsequently challenged in a court of law and determined to be deliberately slanderous, or for any comments made by members of the public.
  • Live streams and recordings of Ordinary and Special Council Meetings  and any other public forums and meetings authorised by the CEO remain the property of the City of Whittlesea and are protected by copyright. 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 CEO. For any commercial or media enquiries, please contact Council’s Communications Manager on 9217 2170.
