It is now on the agenda for the 3 January meeting, starting at 6.30pm.
The recommendation is that audio recordings of key meetings is put in place ….. BUT, it is proposed that officers and members of the public can ask not to be recorded. See this link for the summary of the proposals – https://www.claire-wright.org/index.php/post/eddc_recommends_key_meetings_to_be_recorded/
Also, in the papers are the minutes of the East Devon Business Forum scrutiny task and finish forum, which you may like to read. Certainly, much space is taken up with the justification on gagging the committee.
The agenda papers for the overview and scrutiny meeting, including the committee report on recording of meetings, are below.
