Event Details

It will soon be easier for Hastings residents to see the inner workings of their council.

At a meeting on Thursday Hastings District Council decided to allow meetings to be livestreamed.

The change means people will be able to watch a meeting from the comfort of their own home, as opposed to having to come to the meeting.

Councillor Wendy Schollum said the decision was one the community had been asking for over the past two years.

“When I was campaigning one of the things that I found difficult was being able to get into all the meetings.
