Town council to draw up filming protocol after rows

PUBLISHED: 14:53 08 February 2017


A working party has been set up by Portishead Town Council to look into protocol for filming public meetings.

Government legislation allows meetings to be filmed, however on a rare occasion some members of the public have expressed displeasure at their addresses being caught on camera.

As a result, Portishead Town Council has recently set up a working party to look into finding a long-term solution to please all parties.

It is keen to invite a ‘small number of members of the public’ to join it in creating a filming protocol.
