Stay up to date with council meetings from anywhere in the world with Council’s new live streaming service.

Starting next week, Lake Macquarie City Council meetings will be broadcast live online, with the recordings available for download the following day.

Mayor of Lake Macquarie, Councillor Kay Fraser, said it will encourage further engagement with residents and improve accessibility for people who cannot attend the meetings.

“We want our community to become more involved with council meetings and the decisions we make, and let people know they’re welcome to attend in person or watch online,” Cr Fraser said.

“It demonstrates Council’s open and transparent approach and continued commitment to community engagement and input into council decisions.”

Council meetings are held twice a month in the Council Chambers at Main Road, Speers Point from 6.30pm. Agendas are available online on Tuesday before each meeting.

Watch the first live video stream from 6.30pm on Monday 11 February at lakemac.com.au.
